BBC Worldwide recently named their eight most beautiful skyscrapers. Standing alongside some of the most impressive high-rise buildings in the world and the SHARD in London is one of my favorites, most certainly the top of the list.
Renzo Piano’s glass vertical city has clearly made a lasting impression on the world, as have many of his architectural achievements including the Pompidou Centre and the New York Times Building.
I think he was there when I went to visit there were some suits carrying on like architects’ do, I was trying to be a fly on the wall and overheard some of the amazing technical advances this building has over any other built to date… it is pure magic. http://www.the-shard.com/
