The Shard

What happens when British developers team up with an Italian architect, Qatari investors and a Hong Kong hotel? The Shard happens. At 310 metres, it became the tallest building in the European Union, although globally it’s not even in the top hundred – Europe never played that game anyway. The Shard stands over a major transport hub, London Bridge Station, and offers spectacular views of the financial district across the river. Its location, away from the two main clusters of skyscrapers, paradoxically helped it rise higher. Unlike in many cases in the City, no protected view corridors limit the site and, it’s not in the landing path of aeroplanes as is Canary Wharf. Designed by Renzo Piano workshop and opened in 2012.
