It has turned out really well. In terms of highrises in the City, I think only 99 Bishopsgate has better cladding.

Am I the only one who doesn't like this reclad? I mean the glass itself is fine, but the tower has lost its monumental character completely. It would have looked much better with the old stony façade cleaned up thoroughly.

Yes, and I'm sure you've already stated that a few times. Fact is the old one bought the skyline down and looked awful. The new makes the skyline look 10x better.

I don't know. I kinda liked the old one. By itself it wasn't very nice. But i think with all the new glass towers going up around it, it would have made a nice contrast. Still, not a bad reclad.

Because I'm highly surprised that everyone is so easily impressed by a "fashionable" glass that will look old within a few years as well. If it was a new tower built somewhere in London, I would say it looks quite pleasant, but not in this case.

"Ugly" and "beautiful" is debatable. The only fact is that nowadays concrete facades are not popular any more. Brutalist/modernist architecture experiences a crisis, but these rough looking buildings have made a part of architecture's history if we like it or not. Sadly they disappear form our cities behind a shiny glass that you can find anywhere else from China to South America. If you look at the old photo, you should see that the old design of the tower fitted much better between the oldest stony buildings of the City, but of course you may like the new look of the tower.

The reclad of the Stock Exchange building has already been completed. Can a moderator please move this thread to the archives?
