That's a brilliant picture indeed, the Shard has its place among the landmarks now.

The Shard is a good reason to visit London again.

Great building and great pics.
Renzo Piano is a good architect even if he is a bit...original (his first building was Pompidou Center in Paris...)

All the above pics are great. I do like the Shard but I'm still crossed with its cladding though...

Eomer, I agree with you regarding Piano's originality...actually I personally think that Centre Pompidou is an eyesore, doesn't blend in with Paris's architecture. I can't wait to have a more accurate idea of the new parisian T.G.I by Piano which is to be unveiled this month.

Pompidou is a fantastic building with an interesting architecture but it is not suitable for the atmosphere and environment of paris. but it would work well in a city like london or new york. another problem with that building is that it is not thoroughly maintained though

That top floor is pretty small. Won't it be crowded with tourists?

Looks like an even crappier version of that hotel in Pyongyang.
