Have your say in the survey if you do or not, as I may be sending this to Ed Vaizey who believes the tower should be cancelle for impingin on the Tower of London, despite his beloved Swiss re being closer and more overbearing because of it's style of cladding."Link to survey:)

I have voted yes. It is a world-class piece of architecture in a dynamic (the best?!) part of a world must go ahead. Ed Vaizey should have thought more carefully about what he one breath he managed to condemn all tall buildings without any consideration of their merit (The Shard is great; Potters Field is not).

I love this tower I hope it gets built, one of the best skyscrapers Ive seen. It will be iconic like the gherkin.

i have voted yes. the shard will be THE london icon and the redevelopment that goes with it wil be great for all of us who live and/or work in se1. london has no choice we have to build skywards as land is such a premium. we dont have the space in this country for low-rise especially with regard to our housing needs. the shard will set the standard for future development

I think it is beautiful, but not the chosen location.

I too think it's super. And just because it's glass and translucent I dont think it will spoil the skyline nearly as much as some of the proposed monstrosities.
