The Shard , London – Renzo Piano






The Shard , also called as Shard of Glass is one of work of the international famous architect Renzo Piano. With a height of about 310 meter (about 1015 feet), Shard is the tallest building in the United Kingdom.




This building is based on green architecture since the way it has been design minimize the use of non-renewable energy. However, in this writing, i will focus on the exterior design of the building.  It To me, the most attractive feature about is building is glass surrounding it.  It looks like a non-mature flower: the glasses representing the flower petals and the structure on the inside of the building representing the flower pistil. Is this building conveying the reborn of London?
