A shot of my favourite London skyscraper designed by Norman Foster and Arup engineers: 30 St Mary Axe (formerly the Swiss Re Building, informally referred to as the Gherkin), completed in December 2003 and opened at the end of May 2004. With 40 floors, the tower is 180 metres (591 ft) tall.
Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Playing Chicken' and to Nathan (NDODS) for his much appreciated UA
