The London Gherkin

6 hours in London 3139

A bit of non-Japanese architecture as I work my way through my photo backlog :)

The building known as the Gherkin in London was finished in 2003, and so a trip back to England I made a point of going to see it.

In the middle of "The City", Londons financial district, the building real name is 30 St. Mary Axe, which is its address.

The 40 story glass tower was designed by Norman Foster and Ken Shuttleworth.

I visited on a Sunday when all the offices were closed so the streets were deserted allowing me to wander into the roads to get good views.
