The red horizontal accents visible through the cladding, is that exposed steel?

I reckon there should be an FAQ for this thread

They're the blind boxes. The blinds themselves will be grey.

The second to last picture above, those tubes on the edge of the cladding don't look very straight...

Agreed! And thanks! I love the highlights they give to the facade.

Yeah, but the perspective on the photo creates a foreshortening effect that magnifies the small differences in angle on the tubes. If you aren't looking straight up at it, I think it will be less noticeable.

Yep. This shot was taken a metre or two away from the other one and you can't see it.

What are you talking about? The core has already topped out.

BTW, great photos again cybertect. Some interesting viewpoints and good to see some speedy progress on the backpack cladding too.

You can, look at the tube on the right. It's all over the place.

Heavy zooming always give you that effect. Look at very zoomed in pictures of railroads for example. You even wonder how a train could run on that.

Olympic Shard:

"Giant Olympic rings will be suspended from Tower Bridge and will also eventually adorn the London Eye and St Pancras station, terminus for the Olympic Park "Javelin" shuttle service. London's tallest building, the Shard of Glass, will also be crowned with the rings and there are plans for one of its 72 storeys to light up each time the home nation wins a medal."
