My dad was using a Nokia's camera phone, forgot to ask what type, but not a touch screen, has no bluetooth and about 3 megapixels.

Guys the way the cladding progresses I reckon the exterior will be complete by the end of this year, so it would be quite reasonable to think that next spring will be the inauguration time. Well done.

Definitely something dodgy going on with the concrete on the side of Guys' 'head'... concrete cancer? Quite fitting for a hospital I guess... Should welcome it really, as it strengthens the case for a reclad on not just aesthetic but structural grounds.

This might have been asked before in this thread - sorry if it has.

But why have a separate thread for the Shard here when there's another, much bigger (approx 900 pages) thread elsewhere?

Couldn't there just be a link to that thread here in the supertalls forum?

Yeah its definately one of my favourite pictures of the shard yet, i found it on flikr before and thought it would be bad of me to keep it a secret The sharpness of the shard sits well with the curves of the Assembley. Theres very little that is histroical in that view which is unusual for London but yet its so young and iconic.
