The Shard tower in London becomes more and more impressing. I remember standing at the foot of it back in 2010, when the ugly construction site just showed a massive concrete spear raising into the sky. Now, two years later, The Shard (also Shard London Bridge or Shard of Glass) proves it is worth being called Europe’s tallest building.
With its irregular triangular shape architecture, the dominating glass facade and the viewing gallery and open-air observation deck on the 72nd floor, the 310 meters skyscraper is became another attraction in London after its completion in April. Paul Raftery, architectural photographer, and Dan Lowe, director, have recently collaborated to create a timelapse film showing the final weeks of construction of The Shard tower in London Bridge. It was shot over many days during the early months of 2012, from locations spanning from Greenwich Park to Hampstead Heath and simply impresses!
Those, who want to see some first impressions from The Shard’s top, should check out the amazing shots by SilentUK. The others have to wait until the tower is going to open to the public in July 2012!
