It clearly doesn't look as sleek in reality as it does in almost all of the renders, still looks good though.

I wouldn't say so... yet. Just wait until they remove that white thingy from the windows, cause it makes a difference. I bet it'll look better when finished, if not almost identical.

I know the white papery stuff is spoiling it a little at the moment but even so I think the floors will create very obvious horizontal lines on the building that aren't really present on the renders, especially at the corners. I'm not getting down on it it's still the best project in Europe I just hope I'm wrong because that render looks amazing.

We need a monument of hope in the age of the Shard

The Shard towers over London, a lean, tapering, thrust to the sky. It's magnificent but it's not kind. The contrast with the Gherkin couldn't be starker. The Gherkin, built in 2003, before the financial crisis, is plump and jolly - a monument to a time of plenty. The Shard tells the story of the new world but there's optimism missing in its sharp narrative.

In these dark days the future is uncertain and we need a monument to inspire hope. After the '87 crash, New York adopted a statue of a raging bull to represent financial hope but I propose that London, not least ad-land, needs a statue of slightly balding man in his late fifties. He doesn't need to look aggressive or triumphant or even saintly, he could just look a bit, well, like someone's dad.

He is your hope. The country is feeling the pinch of the financial crisis and things are set to get worse. But we are not all feeling the pinch equally, we are not all in it together as the government tell us. There is a wealth gap opening up in the country and it's not between north and south or the franchised and the underclass; it's between the generations. Your baby boomer parents have all the money and for them, the party isn't over.

This is a story of luck. The baby boomers were born in a post-war world. They were expected to be the generation that fought the Russians but they ended up riding a wave of good fortune and they sucked up all the wealth. Nobody could imagine the extent to which the babies of the fifties would have it so good.

"Average Baby Boomer" is the title I'm giving my proposed statue, or "Brian", to give him a name. He bought his first house for a ninth of the price his average son paid this year for his average property. His son is in negative equity, having only just got rid of his student debt but "Brian" has made a mint from property. His present mortgage has practically gone but he is one of the baby boomers who bought a second home recently because his son's generation couldn't get the credit to benefit from falling house prices. He and his wife are busy furnishing it.

I came across this time-lapse video of the Shard today, very nice shots.

Full credit to fxylxy who created it.
