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?
