Yes it really does and in fact i am really impressed by your camera zoom. The last time when i visited the shard i tried to take some pics of the core but my camera didn't work well, the progress is absolutely amazing and thanks for the pics though

Will this part of The Shard be used ( office, mechanical, observation deck ) or is this already part of the crown?

I'm inclined to agree with you re the cladding, let's face it steel and glass doesn't make great architecture and it has been used since the 50's on some really god-awful buildings but having said that I still quite like the "Shard" because it's not a box and it's also not one of those latest twisty freaks. Looks good from a distance and of course at night.

wonder if they plan to drop a cadaver, or a paedo onto the spire to see how sharp the shard really is?

its all about sculptural form and structure wrapped with a 'skin'. I think Architects are terrified of being seen as facade designers, or doing anything that might hide the structure behind it. In fact I don't think buildings like this that are designed as sculptural forms primarily, can have anything other than a glass, or uniform facade.

I can't even begin to imagine how this would be clad otherwise. Brick? Something a bit neo-classical? Perhaps some large areas of pastel coloured render?
