Artist's Description

This is a view along river Thames taken from the Millennium Bridge with Tower Bridge in the Background. The bridge seen in the foreground is Southwark Bridge and the two classic towers right behind it on the left belong to Cannon Street Station.

Today’s London architecture is a mix of contemporary and historic buildings which gives the city an unique charm. The City of London is home to some of the world’s most striking modern architecture. Three of the tallest buildings in London are recognisable on the picture.

The Shard (2012), visible on the right, was designed by Renzo Piano and with its 934 ft is the highest building in Western Europe. It is designed as a spike-like sculpture emerging from river Thames.

The Cheese Grater (2014), closer left, is a commercial skyscraper, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour. It is the second tallest building in the city of London (737 ft).

The Walkie Talkie (2014, 525 ft) is another commercial skyscraper and is the fifth tallest building in the city of London. It is designed by Rafael Vinoly and adopted its nickname from its distinctive shape. It features a “botanic garden” on top that spans over three floors.
