Great comparison. Back in 2003 the Gerkin was added to the City's skyline; hence a 2002 picture would have been even more dramatic.

I look forward to this tower in London's skyline. It is a new icon for the city and enrich the skyline, Bravo.

Those last images were great. Some of you might not know that the Gherkin was built on the ruins of buildings destroyed by an IRA van bomb which detonated in April 1992 - mercifully killing just 3 people - and if you look in the foreground, there's a tiny church - St Ethelburga's - a rare mediaeval survivor which was almost destroyed by the same device, but was rescued and is now a peace centre open to the public, complete with yurt (tent) in the tiny but beautiful garden at the back!

Those views shown in the picture won't be visible for long. The large cleared area will soon be filled in with a new building...

If someone askes me for the definition of perfect I'll say this cladding is.
