I am a big fan of this one:







A building that you look at and is recognisable instantly. "That's the gherkin, in London."

I wouldn't want to shake the architect's hand.

They should have nicknamed it The Bellend, imo.

They also have The Cheese Grater and the Walkie Talkie.

thoughts?

Spoiler for pics:




^ I'd say that the top floor, with it's dramatic overhang is an exciting piece of architecture, qwertyy. Not so good is the middle floor, which is neither straight nor dramatic; it looks like a slice of ham that hasn't been put in the sandwich properly and just makes me annoyed that nobody could be bothered to push it straight.

the top floor might be the best part of the design. i spent a lot of time there during my last semester and usually after long hours of studying and homework we would go out on the roof and watch passing traffic just to clear our minds and relax.

unfortunately awhile back there was a jumper scenario and because the individual was ready to jump from the top floor, they deemed it unsafe. so until they come up with a safer way to prevent that from happening again the rooftop is closed.
