I love the shadow of the Shard on the Thames.

I just can't help thinking of Ryugyong Hotel when I see pictures of The Shard.

I hope I can shake those pictures out of my head when it's completed.

Apart from the fact that they're both kind of triangular and come to a point, I don't really know where you're coming from with that. They're so different.

IMHO Ryugyong Hotel looks quite squat because of its width:height ratio, and the way the sides go up then down then up to the point gives it totally different lines.

Also the cladding looks totally different. And the way the top of Ryugyong is circular blunts it's angularity which is totally different from the shards sharp lines.

It might be one of the smaller supertalls, but for London it's absolutely massive.

Great quality pictures, cybertect. Nice to see that side of the Shard for a change. BTW, what are those red things running down the side of the core?

Hate this new concrete pouring section. It's going to slow down the project so much. Was loving watching it rise fast with steel.

A second bite at the cherry this week... with more to be found in my Shard Gallery

From Queen Elizabeth Street



On Crucifix Lane



St Thomas Street/Snowsfields



Backpack glazing progress





with this intriguing structure that has appeared at the far eastern end of the site



Cantideck on St Thomas Street



and the SE corner on St Thomas Street, with an eastern glazing 'wing' peeking round



From Great Maze Pond, directly south of the site





Looking east down St Thomas Street from the pedestrian bridge



NW corner looking straight up from the taxi rank at London Bridge Station
