The Shard London, UK

The Shard London Bridge — formerly known as London Bridge Tower and Shard of Glass — is a proposed skyscraper designed by Renzo Piano for a site in London, on the Southwark side of London Bridge, next to London Bridge station at 32 London Bridge Street. It would replace a twenty-four storey building, Southwark Towers, which was completed in 1976. The tower will be 1004 feet tall and have 66 floors. It was granted planning permission in November 2003.

the building looks like hopefully it will break the cycle of rubbish being built in our capital.

What a pointless comment anonymous. This is no doubt the flagshipproject for the capital, but look at wembley, the gherkin, 122 leadenhall, heron tower, the bishopsgate tower, you must be either a NIMBY campaigner or one who doesn't welcome modern architecture at all where it has proven to blend well with older architecture, examples, selfriges in Birmingham, Gherkin in the City of London and the Heathrow terminal 5 along with Wembley. Although More London looks like utter tripe.
