Amazed by the complexity of the design

This building looks absolutely wonderful.

The complexity of the structure with the tapered construction must be a challenge.

I was in the area last night, with some other SSC forumers (Medo, alonzo-ny, Core Rising, NCT).

It's been so long since I took any photos around here - this was actually the first time I'd seen Leadenhall under construction.

This tower is just pure steel porn, when this and bishopgate are eventually completed, London will be amazing

The external elevators are awesome, but I don't care for the multicolor backside. Looks a bit tacky.

I don't think that model shows the colours in the best light, the building's render shows they will be more subtle...

Yer that model doesn't represent a clear picture of what it will look like in real life, I think the coloured segmented panels will be one of this buildings strongest features, this gives you a better idea:
