What I love most about this building, looking at this picture, is how utterly effortlessly it fits into its surroundings. I guess that is one of many reasons that makes London such a great city, architecturally speaking.

Thanks for the photographs Cybertect, makes it feel so much closer.

These are epic times for London. The construction of the Shard and the Pinnacle will change the skyline of the city forever.

I never get fed up of seeing pictures like this. Ancient landmarks and modern landmarks put together.

I love how different the cladding looks in different lights. Will make for some spectacular effects when complete.
