I was part of the very few people that loved this project from the start & now, I must say that I was right in expecting much of it...I think it's superb, very stylish, pretty iconic in its way & the cladding really is up to it. The lateral white stripes are great as they make 20FS stand out even more. I can't wait to see it finished...

I will agree with some of the people that this if any building would have benefited from being taller, but at the same time I really do think it's an awesome building. Mostly because of that cladding that London, like NYC just seems to get right most of time.

I agree. But it's a very distinguished design and it has a high quality glass facade.

London architecture never seizes to amaze me. Beautiful structure

Very nice cladding, but design is plump

What happened in the case of This Building reminds me of what happened to The Design of The Austin Allegro (bear with me)

This was how it was envisioned to look





This is how it ended up

I'd disagree and say it's ended up far better than the design or 'how it was envisioned'

Stunning from some angles, a little awkward from others.

Looking forward to seeing the finished product.
