londoners should be very proud of the shard which is not only the tallest but the first supertall building in the entire EU.

it is located in southwark which is where a new cluster/skyline will be created, many other new skyscrapers will be erected around the shard in the near future.

You already posted this some pages back. Again do you really think it's ugly? Do you hate the Middle Eastern buildings so much?

The two bobble towers in the background are representing the total ugliness.

I don't have anything against the middle east. I'm a brutalist and therefore I don't like fancy shapes and angles

Saw this article on the net; not intending to start a CVC..

Travel Picks: Top 10 "ugly" buildings to visit

Reuters – Fri, May 4, 2012.

(Reuters) - A recent opinion piece in the New York Times resurrected the age-old debate about whether ugly buildings deserved preservation if deemed historically important. While the staff and travelers at online travel advisers Trippy.com (www.trippy.com) may be undecided on that issue, they can certainly tell you which buildings they'd put on the list for consideration. Here are their choices for the World's Top 10 Ugliest Buildings. Reuters has not endorsed this list:

1. J. Edgar Hoover Building (FBI HQ); Washington, D.C.
2. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum; Cleveland, Ohio
3. Sharp Centre for Design; Toronto, Canada
4. Aoyama Technical College; Shibuya, Japan
5. Geisel Library; University of California, San Diego, CA
6. Chang Building ("The Elephant Tower"); Bangkok, Thailand
7. Epi Apartments; Seattle, Washington
8. Trump Tower; New York City, New York
9. The Pixel Building; Melbourne, Australia
10. Royal National Theatre; London, UK

It would be a beautiful building if they wouldn't have chosen such wild colors

Though i dont agree that it deserves to be called ugly, i will say i was extremely dissapointed with the outcome of this tower, the outer cladding is very nice but that concrete inside? i really hate it, it looks incomplete and cheap because of that. The rest of the design though is amazing.

Can't agree with you more. Shanghai could have been so much more.
