The Gherkin

The Morning News: Originally, the thatch of girders, encircled by their attendant cranes, was indistinguishable from the rest of the mostly low-rise cityscape. Gradually, however, an alien, skeletal form emerged, pushing higher and higher, the cladding racing to catch up with the structure. Only in the past month have the final steels been craned into place, completing the curvaceous form.
Here’s a photo of “the gherkin” (30 St Mary Axe) I posted in January.
