I can not help posting this image for a reminder of how the completed building is going to look like. It's refreshing,though.

Itīs funny because, in my opinion, looking to that render this building looks like something that would never be approved...even less in London Donīt ask me why tho Now I think this can be a landmark!

London has about 10 skyscrapers.

Although this one will be the best in the world- by far.

There is no current skyscraper that matches the Shards quality and elegance. Until we design one of course .

Am not going to ask you why. At least we share thesame opinion about the difference it's going to make in that location.

Why have you put London as your location?

Because you've clearly never been judging by that comment.

Tbh I'm not a huge fan of Guy's, but here it looks as if a fresh coat of (white) paint and some minor recladding would produce an excellent, contrasting neighbour. The Brutalist style actually almost works if the hospital could be brightened up and maintained correctly.

Hmm. Paint it white and give it dark blue glass. That would be interesting, but since it is London after all, I have another idea: Paint It Black.

Paint it white?? You know what they say - you can't polish a turd. I would say demolish it but being a hospital it's there for a reason.
