Shard looms over London landmarks
Europe’s tallest building was officially unveiled in central London yesterday.
The Shard’s tapered design and glass panelling have already made it one of the capital’s most noticeable landmarks.

The tower, designed by Italian Renzo Piano, will contain offices, exclusive residences, a luxury hotel, restaurants and a viewing gallery across 72 floors which can be occupied.
