A close-up shot of the Leadenhall Building, nicknamed the Cheesegrater due to its triangular shape. The building was designed by Sir Richard Rogers




A view of the slowly growing Leadenhall Building situated in the heart of the City of London. Once completed the building will stand at an impressive 225 metres, making it one of the tallest buildings in the city




Due to its wedge shape, the Leadenhall Building has been given the nickname the Cheesegrater but it is hoped that this unusual design will have less impact on the protected view of St Paul's Cathedral

Oh my God I get it now! The angled shape makes so much more sense when you look at St. Paul's towards the city. Well done, Mr. Rogers, well done.
