The Shard: London’s Newest View

This week saw The Shard open its doors to the public for the first time after its completion back in July 2012. At 309.6 metres and 95 floors, the structure is the tallest in the EU making its views of the London cityscape unprecedented.

London is a city which bares the marks of change and innovation architecturally, its skyline acting as a reflection for the progressive culture London has become famous for. The Shard is the latest example of metamorphosis of the city: a great jutting monument of contemporary design placed just beside the iconic London Bridge.

Its Italian Pritzer Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano is no stranger to this thrusting forward of urban space, his most famous project being Paris’ Centre George Pompidou which he designed in the 70s alongside Richard Rogers. His style is unapologetic, unconcerned with fitting in with existing surroundings, and certainly The Shard is no exception to this.

To mark the opening of London’s newest view, The Guardian newspaper has uploaded an online 360-degree panorama. In keeping with this idea of the progression of London’s skyline, the interactive site picks out key buildings that can be seen from The Shard complete with charming stories from some of the nation’s best loved figures such as Antony Gormley and Tony Benn and a hustling, bustling urban soundtrack.
