Although it has opened to mixed reviews, there is no question the skyline in London has changed dramatically with the new 310m high Shard building by starchitect, Renzo Piano. Western Europe’s tallest building, it is a vertiginous vision of gleaming glass with the inclusion of the UK’s first Shangri-La hotel alongside residences, office space and the top floors designated for public viewing. A dynamic addition to the centrepiece of futurist architecture that is the city center. See TheShard.com
