Standing 306 metres tall, the Shard Building is currently the tallest building in the European Union and is a major feature of the London skyline. The architect who designed it thought of it as a shard of glass through the heart of London’s historic district. It’s an unusual construction really draws your eye. Walking along the bank of the Thames, on our way back from a visit to London’s iconic Tower Bridge, we stopped to admire the building, which looked like something out of a sci-fi movie as the sun set behind it. Its’ glass walls, reflecting every ray of sunlight, illuminating the building as another day drew to a close in London.
