Nicknamed ‘The Gherkin’ or ‘The Cigar’, it is formally known as ‘The Swiss Re building’ or ‘30 St Mary’s Axe’. Norman Foster’s latest building, which has quickly become an icon of the London skyline, looks to me more like a huge glass Hindenburg, the wrong way up. You reach the cockpit at the top in a few seconds (one writer said it reminded him of a James Bond set). Built on the site of where an IRA bomb went off many years ago, it dominates the skyline. Buildings this tall and few and far between in London.

Completed in 2003, the building is not designed to be viewable to the public. (From the inside, that is). Even the restaurant near the top is for employees only. Such a shame. This is not New York - Londoners are not used to seeing wide vistas of their city from a great height. There should be some law that insists on public access to such places.

In Wellington the Parliament building is called the Beehive ... I think most of these high flying designers come up with their ideas after a few to many joints and looking in the fridge for inspiration ...just like chef's
