“There is nothing more poetic and terrible than the skyscrapers’ battle with the heavens that cover them.” ~ Federico Garcia Lorca
This is the Shard. It is 95 storeys high and towers 309.6 metres up into the sky above. It is the tallest building in the Untied Kingdom. Construction was completed in Nov 2012 and the viewing platform right up there in the very pinnacle of this amazing building was open to the subject in early 2013. If you are in London and what to get the best view over this amazing city then I highly recommend a trip up this huge colossus of a building.
