I think it has already become an icon of London, but as previously said a great city like this has many icons, St.Paul's, Palace of Westminster, Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, The "Gherkin" Nelson's Column, etc. so it will join the others.
Looks particularly impressive at night - great photos.

for Londoners it already is an icon it can be seen from pretty much anywhere in the city. I'm sure it will get attention during the 2012 games.

It's looking a bit Tower-of-Babelish at the top!
