The Gherkin “Pickle?!” is I think the nicest building in London. This picture has been taken from my office. My colleagues told me that at the begining English people didn’t like it because it looks like a big dil**!
The Gherkin is today one of most important symbols of London.

London is a town where you will see many cranes. It’s always under construction or renovation probably because it s a dynamic city!

Because of the flower this building of The City seems bigger than it actually is. It’s maybe how an ant sees us…

Another building of Canary Wharf. Just when tou go out from the tube station of the brand new business area you are surrounded by this kind of towers. Quite nice design isn’t it?

If the weather is ok you can have a nice view of Canary Wharf from Greenwich parc’s hill. You can spot the three biggest tower of the UK: City Group, HSBC and One Canada Square.
