People probably said the same about St Paul's back in the 18th century.

People just canīt get it. You think they bothered with preserving architecture from the ages before? The St Paulīs cathedral is a jewel of itīs time, so itīs Shard. London is a city of contrasts, so I think that a modern architecture next to the old will cause a perfect feeling of London. We have to preserve architecture that is really meaningful and itīs impact will last forever. Skyscrapers are a new symbols of our eraĻ

Following Chest's spectacular light this evening, that which was available at lunch time was rather more mundane...

Your constant updates are a treasure. You must have a giant collection by now.

Great photographs everyone! This thing is looking fantastic; it's hard to believe it will still climb higher than the core!

At this stage progress can only be noticed by time lapse but I can't wait for that.

@cyber: you should print the best in a large frame and open 'The Shard Museum'.
