It will probably take some time before we see a reclad on Guy's Hospital but I'm sure it will happen sooner or later.

Cyber presenting us with some cracking shots, as usual!

The Shard and the London Eye, the two modern symbols of London!

I don't believe it's on the agenda of the trustees of Guy's Hospital.

It may/should be getting a makeover, though

FWIW, I rather like it as it is, though it needs a clean and some repairs.

Trees can't read very well and consequently got the wrong message about the name of the street they live in...

O.o is that part of the guy's hospital? the entrance of the hospital complex is just under the shard as i can remember.


by the way imho the worst buildings in london are:

-Llloyd Building: i hate it, seems a rafinery.

-Barbican Centre: i really love the idea, but the result it's awful it's so dark and their towers are out of place

-some resindential building complexes on the thames.


and pleas don't build the walkie talkie!

The core stopped again I suppose. But it's almost surpassing One Canada Square.
