The Passage of Time II by katherineyoung

The Shard is a 95-storey skyscraper in Southwark, London, that forms part of the London Bridge Quarter development. The Shard’s construction began in March 2009 and completed in November 2012. The tower’s privately operated observation deck, The View from The Shard, was opened to the public on 1 February 2013.
Standing 309.6 metres, The Shard is currently the tallest building in the European Union. It was designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano and replaced Southwark Towers, a 24-storey office block built on the site in 1975. The Shard was developed by Sellar Property on behalf of LBQ Ltd and is jointly owned by Sellar Property and the State of Qatar.
