A sharper rendition of the residential blocks by Stanton Williams.

The Herzog & de Meuron tower obviously takes pride of place as the iconic building but these fillers have plenty of quality and class as well.

Tallest building the Herzog & de Meuron residential has been increased to 204m and as can been seen in the photo above, now site prep.

Can we change the thread title please:

Last summer I had 2 weeks of work experience with Canary Wharf Contractors on this project. Between now and then I have had to fight through, what has been the certainly the hardest academic year of my life so far. It was a complete suprise to me then that earlier this year, my work experience supervisor on Wood Wharf actually invited me back to have yet another two weeks on such a thrilling and wonderful project! So far I have been back on the Canary Wharf barges (site offices) for a week and I am saddened to comprehend that I have just a week left before I go again! Since working on the project last year I now anticipate studying both architecture and engineering at university. For now I am loving every minute of it and I can't get enough of the scale of what is going on and admiring all the attention to detail that is happening to get this off the ground!

Unlike last year, I haven't been on site (yet hopefully), although I have taken photographs of the site throughout the week and this thread is due an update.
