It was the Greenland Plaza thread, actually. Though I agree with your sentiment.

Ha, oh really? Well I think he's made his tree feelings clear in both threads then.. and probably more!
Maybe he was brutally savaged by a mob of trees as a child... or maybe he's just an idiot...?
Ho hum

London could not handle it. Planes fly too low on way to City Airport!

Stupid comment. If your going to post why you don't like the building and actually start some intellectual debate about it's merits and flaws, then fine.

Otherwise, you just sound like a jealous retard

Yeah, we need to give each Architect respect. Not all buildings will be liked by everyone. You are right, if someone is going to say something negative, they must give a reason to justify their dislike.

I agree. I love this tower.

Looks like the one from the movie I, Robot.

^Fantastic rendering. When the image is put into context with the London skyline you realise how tall it's actually going to be.

I work in the building directly in front (Guy's hospital), so i walk past the site every day. Not much to see at the moment - just holes being drilled into the ground, but i'll take my camera into work and get a few pictures next week.

I personally think its fundamental that once built, the LBT remains the tallest building in London.. I'd hate for it to be surpassed, I'm sure most would disagree, in wanting 350m+ even 400m+ towers, but for me I think the Shard should be 'the' tower of the city.

The above render I think echoes my sentiment, and shows this design is exceptional.

I think it would be interesting to see at least a 500 m tower in London. Of course more than that would be going too far. But some skyscrascrapers over 400 m would be great for the skyline. The Shard shouldn't be the end of a period in London's constant renewal. It shoud be the beginning of great changes in the urban landscape of the city. The Shard might be the start for something bigger.
