30 St Mary Axe. In my opinion, the most beautiful building in London!

Doesn't it depend on illumination? Maybe they're going to do it like in Heron Tower (though there is no yelloe steel).

I know this is an obvious remark but the taller it gets the faster it will grow right? Because it gets thinner by each floor?

How come this skyscraper has no cloth or tarpaulin over it as it's going up? Never seen this before, it's very unusual. It makes watching the construction more interesting.
