A few pix from last Thursday, making the most use of the pedestrian bridge over St Thomas Street before it was demolished

Shard is great. That's obviuos. But I guess that almost every skyscraper that is under construction sucks. That's why you should better wait with your opinion until it's done because it might be different. Of course, we'll see in several years.

This tower looks so alien and exciting at the site time, I'd love to go there one day.

It reminds me of Herzog and De Meuron's skyscraper proposal for Paris.

I've noticed that whenever you travel into London now (no matter where from) the Shard is the first thing you see and it's an instant icon of London. Fantastic.

Do look at the patch of very clear glass in SO143's first photo. Looks like some polypropylene may have been removed.

The glass isn't merely clean. It's transparent.

I think it's literally where the glass has been cleaned. The tower has gotten very dirty over the course of construction. Once it's finished and polished it'll look truly stunning. Some of the pictures we've had on here show the light reflections to be almost blinding.
