No core, the whole thing is one big steel frame.

the building is hudge from some angles, comparing with others, still the wide transparent glass makes the volume like a translucid wall. and it doesn t look 'heavy'. hope the interior will be open space and this transparency will be kept.
i like those visible frames also.

I have to say, the cladding has turned out really well... much, much better than I expected.

Great pics Medo

You get a good view of it on the skyline coming into London Bridge station, and yesterday (ex-Brighton Pride) I have to say it looked far less clad than in these photos... must be a perspective thing.

It does, doesn't it? Renderings never come close to getting the reflections right.

Good man. I am in Mexico City which is nowhere near the greatness of London....nowhere near but I am here. One day I will live in London.

Back to the topic in hand. The exposed structure on that building was a great great move.

The North facing side is almost completely clad, while the South facing side is less than halfway clad. You must have seen the less clad side.

Aye, it was the south side that I saw on Saturday coming into London Bridge... But I see the the north side from my bedroom and there's still about 10 unclad floors... I suppose that as I can't see the lower portion of the tower that makes it look really un-clad, but in reality its over 2/3 clad therefore.
