Shard London Bridge - London
Shard London Bridge— also known as London Bridge Tower and the Shard of Glass — is a supertall skyscraper planned for construction in London. If completed this building will be the tallest building in Europe.
Piano, the project's architect, has compared his design to "a shard of glass" - he considers the slender, spire-like form of the tower a positive addition to the London skyline and believes that its presence will be far more delicate than opponents of the scheme allege. He proposes a sophisticated use of glazing, with expressive facades of angled panes intended to reflect light and the changing patterns of the sky, so that the form of the building will change according to the weather and seasons.
