Perhaps they did get it, yet Viñoly is Urugayian That's close enough to the Argies but not quite the same thing

P.S. Wonderful shots from SO 143 and PortoNuts (BTW, welcome back!)

I could accommodate the criticism of this building prior to its construction when we had renders that looked clumsy, overbearing and detrimental to the continued effort to create a cluster in the City...

..Now its at this stage though, seriously cannot understand the negativity. It is an amazing project and will be a jewel in the City's crown. The massing of this when viewed from across the river with Billingsgate market neatly infront of it is superb.

As a person who lives within a mile of this building and therefore someone who will actually see it almost everyday (holidays and being ill/drunk in bed not with standing) I can't wait for it to be complete so I can go and visit the Sky Garden. As a Londoner (well, for the past 16years) I think it'll be a great addition to our ever changing central London skyline.

I'd lie if I said I wasn't a bit sceptic how it will turn out.
Design itself is pretty interesting though as well as the idea of sky garden, hopefully it will fit into London cityscape well. Facade so far looks nice, high quality, so I'm being an optimist!
