the Shard, a vertical city; one of the world's most recognizable & beautiful buildings with striking architectural features is London's highest viewing platform.
designed as 8 sloping glass facades,
"THE SHARDS," in a pyramid form comprised of business offices, retail, restaurant/bars and even a hotel!
this landmark is new to London skyline designed with an elegance airy aesthetic inspired by London churches...'Lightness' would be the perfect way to describe it considering the glass structure.

While up there, I welcomed myself to the Summer Garden Party. Fresh flowers of British brilliant blooms filled the space celebrating the Year of the English Garden.
I encourage a 'must-see' visit of this London landmark!
