Awesome pictures. It looks very endearing on a cloudy day - I like it.

When on earth is that anti-ray net thing coming down?

I'm rather liking this, the complicated roof structure has added height and looks incredibly contemporary

May I add that the roof has also made it look more balanced, in my opinion. It definitely doesn't look as bad as I initially thought it would.

Developers submit plans to stop 'Walkie-Talkie' skyscraper rays



Developers have unveiled plans to install aluminium fins on the "Walkie-Talkie" to prevent the sun's rays reflecting from the skyscraper.

Land Securities and Canary Wharf Group have submitted a planning application to the City of London for a brise soleil system.

The system will prevent solar glare by absorbing sunlight, they said.

The 37-storey building in the City of London had started fires and caused damage to nearby businesses.

It was said not only to have melted parts of a Jaguar, but also blistered paintwork and caused tiles to fall.

The proposals say a series of horizontal aluminium fins will be installed across the southern side of the building from level 3 to 34.

The brise soleil is designed to diffuse sunlight to stop it reflecting from the building.

If approved the installation is expected to take approximately six months to install, the developers said............

Also I agree - the roof makes it look much better than the original renderings. I have been very impressed by this tower.

The roof is a sculpture in itself.

I just hope the aluminium blinds won't stand out too much.

If anything, the aluminium blinds will fit in with the vernacular of the area, which is having an "exoskeleton" (Lloyds of London & the new Leadenhall skyscraper being the two examples that leap to mind).

Beautiful tower.

The roof is so interesting to look at.

Looks GREAT. As the roof has been added the side of the building looks somewhat 'thinner' .... it may be just my imagination.

Either way it looks tremendous.
