One Response to The Shard, London’s Newest Outcast

  1. Ares, An interesting article. Personally I am not a fan of the Shard I believe it is out of scale, sitting in isolation from the other areas of tall buildings (Canary Wharf and Bishopsgate/ the Square Mile), and it intrudes on and spoils other classic city vistas – I think Londoners will come to view it as a mistake in years to come!
