London Abstract Architecture

30 St Mary Axe (formerly the Swiss Re Building, and informally also known as “the Gherkin”) is a skyscraper in London’s financial district, the City of London, completed in December 2003 and opened at the end of May 2004.[2] With 41 floors, the tower is 180 metres (591 ft) tall,[1] and stands on the site of the former Baltic Exchange, which was extensively damaged in 1992 by the explosion of a bomb placed by the Provisional IRA.[2][4]
After the plans to build the Millennium Tower were dropped, 30 St Mary Axe was designed by Norman Foster and Arup engineers,[5] and was erected by Skanska in 2001–2003.[1]
The building has become an iconic symbol of London and is one of the city’s most widely recognised examples of modern architecture.
