    VP: don't take a river trip west from Westminster pier, the newer riverside buildings are 'orrible. Way beyond pastiche.

    As for the City, 122 Leadenhall Street { the "Cheesegrater" } is interesting for the method of construction employed, except that the bolts holding it together fell off months after it was finished, due to hydrogen embrittlement: " a material failure mechanism within the bolt material." Bolted back together later.

    As for 20 Fenchurch Street saga of planning approvals: ( Walkie/Talkie/Scorchie ): you will not want to see here, since you don't care ( it's a short account ):

    Edit: Add photo taken in 2014. Not a pretty sight (site?), St.Paul's excepted.
