Some of the greatest architecture is in London. O I miss it so much! It's my home town but have been away for a while now. Great shots, they really capture the grandness of the place!

Indeed, got a great view of Heron Tower and Strata as I got the train in to London Bridge station this morning, truly is one of the most amazing cities in the world. I can't wait till The Shard and Pinnacle are finished

London really needs modern skyscrapers like this! Hope to see more tall buildings cropping up there in the coming years.

And i realy like the cladding, the color is beautiful ...

Looks expensive - with the downturn, this must be an issue!
