Description

The Shard is the tallest building in western Europe. From February 2013, the public will be able to visit floors 68 to 72, where they will experience an amazing 35-mile vista over London and beyond.

The book sets The Shard in the context of its location close to an area associated with Chaucer, Shakespeare and Dickens – before outlining its design principles and construction story. Also included are Q&As with both its architect, Renzo Piano, and developer, Irvine Sellar, and fascinating facts and statistics relating to this extraordinary building.

Central to the book’s purpose is a series of twelve double-page panoramic photographs of the view from The Shard that have been annotated to identify London’s key buildings, monuments and landmarks; and a beautiful sequence of dusk shots, offering a 360ยบ panorama of the skyline.

Elegantly designed, the book will intrigue and appeal to everyone who lives in or is a visitor to London.
