London Bridge Tower, also known as the "Shard", was completed in July 2012. With his 306m height and conceived and implemented as a vertical town, the tower is a shimmering, lively presence in London's skyline. The volume is an account of the story of this astonishing project, from its first design hypothesis and inception, to the amazing building site and the final grand opening.The volume presents a wide and exclusive choice of Renzo Piano's sketches, prospects, plans and sections of the building, working models, prototypes and photos from the site, along with direct accounts of those who took part in this extraordinary adventure.A text by Renzo Piano in first person tells the "behind the scene" story of a building that has become a landmark in thecity of London.A second edition of the book, edited in 2016, includes also the News Building, a 17-storey office block, which forms part of the London Bridge Quarter development, the rebuilding of London Bridge bus station and the creation of a new public piazza
