26 May 2015 • View from the shopping precinct called Surrey Quays, in Rotherhithe, of the City of London, with its tall offices. The tallest building in the view is 122 Leadenhall Street – a slender wedge-shaped building commonly known as the ‘Cheesegrater’. Partly obscured by it is Tower 42 – built as the NatWest Tower. The curved lines of 20 St Mary Axe – commonly called the ‘Gherkin’ – is shining in the sun. The Heron Tower (far right) completes the ‘line up’ of tall buildings.
