The Shard.

The Shard is the thousand foot high pyramid of glass near London Bridge it is the tallest building in Europe it was designed by Renzo Piano and started with a sketch at dinner. In the photograph above the Shard is on the left with the top disappearing into a cloud as rain made a very good attempt to stop play at the Diamond Jubilee. I don't know who will occupy the penthouse here or indeed what the use of the upper stories will be but I am sure whoever finds themselves at the top of London society will get a very good view of the clouds from there a heady prospect.
