This is a massive building which tries hard to disguise the fact. There are a few slab blocks in the vicinity of similar height, but nothing has quite the same bulk. Quadrant-shaped in plan and section, its form seems to mutate as one moves around it. From some standpoints it is huge, and from others it is less so. It dominates the view along parts of London Wall from the east. 16 floors of rentable floor space and a penthouse plant floor sit above a two-storey base podium - all accessed via a central core. Whilst many would state that it is far from the practice's best work, it is, nevertheless, executed with the usual mastery that one expects from Foster & Partners. Junctions and details which lesser architects would struggle with, are handled here the practice's usual panache; lifting the building above the mundane.
