Thanks percy. I agree, that's my favourite of that bunch.

Lunch time stroll today testing out a new lens purchased via a well known auction site.

Well, I say new, but it's about 35 years old; a Canon FD 35mm f/2 SSC. Suffice to say I'm happy with it.

Oh, black and white because I felt like it...

This building kind of reminds me a little of the bottom of One World Trade Centre NYC.
Can't wait to see this one finished, going to make look amazing on London's skyline.

Where is it? My eyes don't give so much attention to details.

It seems like the top of the core has been exposed forever. I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but when are they going to finish the superstructure?

Depends what you mean by 'completed'

Structurally complete or fitted out and habitable?

Do you mean when the cladding of the already-constructed portion is done, or are you being unhelpful?

The inauguration is due to happen in May 2012 but it won't open to the general public until 2013.

Why does The Shard has a big core in the middle and other supertalls like Mercury City Tower in Moscow and 1WTC in NY don't?
What's the difference and which construction way is faster?

It's because the Shard contains a giant antimatter accelerator with which we will destroy the sun, and the others don't. The sun may have set on the British Empire but we're going out on our terms.
