      I'am afraid that this building doesn't match to the silhouette of London. :-(

      it does splinter opinion :) but it's south of the river (away from the 'traditional skyline') and has exceptionally fine design quality even at its base. It will be reminiscent of London's many church spires IMO.

      It's staggering. That area used to be almost desolate, especially by the river. I used to love going for walks there from my, then, flat in Old Street. Now it's heaving.
      Great shot!

      yes, I like the way much of the old character is retained, but with some beautiful new builds like the Shard, 6 More London Place and 7 More London.
