I saw what I'm pretty sure it's the base mount for the top BMU on the back of a lorry at the Shard Holding Area on St Thomas Street early yesterday afternoon.

As cyber said, it's not, but it could be a neon light.

You don't need to go ruin a compliment by tacking on your personal architectural preferences.

The building is looking A.W.E.S.O.M.E! Go London!

Cybertect is right, thats the BMU base, I know because I am on the design team.

The main jib is getting lifted today or tomorrow hopefully.

Ill post some pics of the BMU base getting dropped in at L87 if anyone is interested.
