This building is the result of a series of long and bitter struggles. In 1967, Mies van der Rohe, invited by his client (Peter Palumbo) came to London to design a skyscaper for the site. It was granted planning permission in 1969. However, it took Palumbo over another decade to acquire all the land required. By then, in the 1980s, the permission had lapsed and had to be re-applied for. This time the application was rejected and Palumbo appealed. Jim Stirling appeared on Palumbo's behalf at the hearing. The eventual outcome was that the site could be developed, but not with the Mies scheme. Stirling, highly regarded as the right man for the job after his acclaimed Neue Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart had opened in 1984, received the new commission. This was also a lengthy process, since it involved the demolition of nine 'listed' and much loved buildings. The scheme is styled in the 'Post-Modern' idiom, which was fashionable at the time. It was completed after Stirling's death in 1992.

It's a sad storry of how a rich scoundrel vandalised the City worse then any luftwaffe. What I didn't know is that Stirling acted on nouveau riche's side - I thought he just had to build something on the alredy devastated place. I am affraid London is too commercialized and csmopolitan place to start a campain for detroying the "Post-Modern idiot".
