A panorama taken through the grimy glass of the skygraden atop the ‘walkie talkie’ building- or 20 fenchurch street. The weather was just clearing up after a rain shower, and the light caught the back of the clouds creating this stunning, dramatic sky, with some mist on the horizon following the shower. This incredible scene lasted less than a minute!

The Walkie Talkie by katherineyoung

20 Fenchurch Street is a commercial skyscraper in London that takes its name from its address on Fenchurch Street, in the historic City of London financial district. It has been nicknamed The Walkie-Talkie because of its distinctive shape.

Construction was completed in spring 2014, and the top-floor ‘sky garden’ was opened in January 2015. The 34-storey building is 160 m (525 ft) tall, making it the fifth-tallest building in the City of London.

Designed by architect Rafael Viñoly and costing over £200 million, 20 Fenchurch Street features a highly distinctive top-heavy form which appears to burst upward and outward. A large viewing deck, bar and restaurants are included on the top three floors; these are open to the public.
