Looks like scaffolding going up on Guy's Hospital. Could it be for recladding?

We sold everything to travel around the world for a year with a Rocky statue. Here's Little Rocky in London with the Shard.




You can follow Rocky's journey around the world at: http://www.changesinlongitude.com/

Or see the Facebook album where he's been: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=783a827fee

Cheers!

Larissa and Michael

Am I the only one that feels the spire should have been taller?

Don't worry. After the Olympics, they'll install that cauldron on top.

I don't think making it 100 meters or so taller would have made any difference.

Beautiful building! By far the best skyscraper in Europe! Its great as it is, but if they could've added 100 feet this would have been magnificent.

Sadly it's just an ugly 200mish TV tower. I think there's a similar one in the French capital.

When I first saw this project I did not like it. I thought it was bland and boring. For some reason the renders just did not look good to me, but now that it is up, I really like it. I think it looks great, and adds quite a distinct personality to the London skyline.
