This has grown on me now that the cladding has progressed. Congratulations, London!

The rain will not be enough to wash the cladding clean rather human effort is still required. Actually, I quite understand what PortNuts is trying to relate with by that − I can as well feel the sense of how far the cladding has gone and it's so invigorating.

I obviously didn't mean they should wait for the rain to wash it. But perhaps it doesn't make much sense to be cleaning it all the time now with so much lorry movement and when they have more urgent matters in hands (like completing the tower).

The Gherkin is always going to be a classic but it wouldn't be too long before it got dwarfed by something else.
