  • The Shard at London Bridge will not only redefine Londons skyline, it will become a symbol for the capital that is recognisable throughout the world. Irvine Sellar, Chairman Sellar Property Group

  • The shape of the tower is generous at the bottom and narrow at the top, disappearing in the air like a 16th century pinnacle or the mast top of a very tall ship. The architecture of The Shard is firmly based in the historic form of Londons masts and spires. Renzo Piano

  • The Shard is a masterwork of architectural design Richard Rogers, Lord Rogers of Riverside

  • London Bridge quarTer 12

    i dont believe it is possible to build in London a tall building by extruding the same shape from top to bottom, says renzo Piano, architect of the Shard at London Bridge Quarter. it would be too small at the bottom and too big at the top the shape of [this] tower is generous at the bottom without arrogantly touching the ground, and narrow at the top, disappearing into the air like a 16th century ships pinnacle or the mast top of a very tall ship.

    the Shard will be a tower like no other, both architecturally breathtaking and technologically advanced. Yet Piano came up with the concept and the dramatic form of the Shard in just a matter of seconds.

    irvine [Sellar] reminded me recently that during our first lunch together i picked up a pencil and started sketching, recalls Piano, describing the exploratory meeting with his client-to-be in a Berlin restaurant a few years ago.

    We talked from the beginning about putting together office space, hotel space and residential space, he continues, and it was clear that for the office you needed floorplates this big he gestures with his hands placed widely apart in front of him for the hotel you need them to be that big he brings his hands closer together and for the homes you need them that big, he says, his hands now just a few inches apart. So if you need that, that and that, what shape do you end up with?

    he picks up a pencil and sketches rapidly on a piece of paper, just as he did during that preliminary lunch. and it was clear that the only way to make something elegant was to not fill the sky to make something slim. So its quite wide here at the base where the offices are, then less and less wide as

    it rises, and you could have an observation deck here, public spaces here, a hotel here, housing here. it came very quickly.

    and sure enough, after just a few seconds, the soaring, fractured spire of the Shard is visible on the paper.

    Piano is one of the worlds greatest living architects and regularly tops the most respected architect polls of fellow architects. he shot to international prominence in 1977 when, together with richard rogers, he designed the Pompidou centre in Paris.

    this building, just a stones throw from his office in a narrow street in the Marais district, changed the course of world architecture. With its transparent glass faade, visible steel structure and externally mounted pipes and ducts, it was the first cultural institution designed to welcome the public rather than intimidate them.

    it was also the precursor of the structurally expressive high tech school of architecture still practiced by richard rogers, as well as others such as norman Foster and nicholas grimshaw, whose Waterloo international terminal in London would not have been possible without Pianos Pompidou.

    Since then, Piano has produced a sequence of highly acclaimed buildings around the world, notably the Kansai international airport terminal, built on an artificial island in osaka Bay, Japan and, at 1.7km long, one of the largest buildings ever constructed and the masterplanning of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin the symbolic new heart of the reunified german capital.

    he has also won many of architectures greatest prizes, including the riBas royal gold Medal and the Pritzker Prize widely regarded as architectures equivalent of the nobel Prize in 1990.

    But the Shard promises to be the highlight of his 40-year career. not only will it be one of the tallest buildings in europe, but it will also be one of the most technologically advanced towers ever built.

    unlike other superstar designers, Piano is not driven by ego or the desire to break records: he is only interested in projects that enhance the beauty of cities and provide pleasure for their users.

    Piano was born in genoa, italy, in 1937, into a family of builders but decided early on to study architecture. he still spends half his time close to his home town, where he has a spectacular glass office atop a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean.

    unusually among international architects, Piano does not have a signature style. instead, he responds to each brief anew, focusing on the poetic aspects of the building such as the way spaces can trigger emotions and the way light plays on its surface and floods into the interior.

    the Shard will use an advanced type of glass with a low iron content that means it is completely clear, rather than having the greenish tinge of most architectural glass.

    if you use low iron glass you end up with something that really is like a crystal, he says. it will not look like a massive glass meteorite choom! as many towers do. its going to be more vibrant and changing. So depending on the day, the light and the position of the sun, the building will look different.

    an interview with renzo Piano

  • London Bridge PLace 15

    Piano gives the impression that he would not have taken on the job of designing a tower like the Shard were it not for the possibility of designing a virtually car-free building. the Shard is a bit like an iceberg. the invisible part is what i call the social vision for a city, which is very strong here. When i first met irvine in Berlin, i was attracted not by the idea of making a tall building, but the idea of making a mixed-use tower a vertical city.

    the most important thing that attracted us was this idea of mixing use the offices, the hotel and the housing and the fact that it was sitting in a vital place of interchange. it provided an excellent occasion to show that you could provide life in a city without increasing the traffic by using public transportation.

    nevertheless, Piano is sensitive to concerns about the transformation of Londons skyline.

    i dont think London is a city of towers and i dont see many places where you can make new towers, he says. i dont think the only way of intensifying life in the city is by making towers. i believe in growth by implosion filling in the gaps, building near railway stations rather than explosion at the periphery.

    Yet the Shard will be a natural addition to the city, as he sets out at the end of his written statement on the building: My real ambition is to make a new building that people will adopt quickly and that feels like it has been there for ever. i dont believe this building will disturb St Pauls cathedral as they are breathing the same air, sharing the same atmosphere; they are nurtured at the same source.

    Maison herms, tokyo

    he is also interested in the environmental possibilities of architecture: he is proud of the fact that the Shard will not cast a deadening shadow over huge parts of London.

    here our shadow is cast mainly over the river. and because the tower is narrow at the top, the shadow is smaller.

    Piano is similarly proud of the buildings sustainable credentials: it will use around 30% less energy than other comparable buildings. this is achieved by a combination of sophisticated materials, such as the triple-skin glass faade containing computer-controlled venetian blinds that will shield occupants from the sun and reduce the need for air conditioning. at night, and when you dont have sun which happens in London the blinds will disappear, he says.

    heat generated by the computers in the offices will be recycled to help heat the hotel and apartments higher up.

    But the towers greatest contribution to the sustainability of London is due to its location. Sitting atop London Bridge Station one of the capitals greatest transport interchanges it will be one of the few skyscrapers in the world without a vast underground car park beneath it.

    do you realise we have space for just 47 cars in this building? he exclaims. 47! not 4000. Just a handful for the disabled, that kind of thing. its intensifying life in the city without adding new cars. So there is a kind of utopia here.

  • LONDON BRIDGE PLACE 65

    My vision is that London Bridge Place is a building with its own character: strong, compelling, visible and coherent with the Shard. the building will float above the ground liberating space and creating a vibrant public environment. this building will use renewable energy and create a large sun collector of solar panels, the south facade being perfectly oriented towards the sun. Winter gardens on every floor, allowing natural ventilation, will create a permeable building skin. My ambition here is to nurture, complement and reinforce the adventure we started with the Shard and make this a vibrant new quarter for London.

    The offices and winter gardens

    each of the office floors contains two naturally-ventilated winter gardens. these break-out and meeting areas allow occupants to enjoy natural light and air in a multi-functional, fully-occupiable space within the office.

    used extensively in renzo Pianos aurora Place development in Sydney, these areas have proved a welcome innovation within the modern office.

    Varying between 30 and 90 sq m in area, the two winter gardens on each floor make best use of the stunning views from the building. the west winter gardens have 180 views towards St Pauls, the houses of Parliament and Battersea Power Station and the eastern winter gardens enjoy views of the Shard, tower Bridge and canary Wharf.
