Can't wait for the Channel 4 documentary on the Shard this week. Should be good.

The skyline is starting to look like New York. Sad.

There's nothing wrong with that. Besides, it just looks that way from that angle.

It's strange, I've seen many more "futuristic" skylines drawn of London than I have of New York. Why is this?

Could be that innovative contemporary architecture has come to London later.

It might look that way in some photos but actually it's quite different. Nearly all the new high rise buildings are located in the eastern section of London, in what is known as the "city" and docklands, Canary Wharf etc. The West End which is the main retail, restaurant, hotel area and home of most of the famous monuments is strictly controlled with most new development being only up to around 9/10 floors, so in a way you have the best of both worlds. The Shard is located on the south bank, opposite the "City".

Certainly the best skyline in Europe, anyone else agree? I terms of quality and aesthetics I just think nothing else matches, and London hasn't even got some of its main projects up yet.
