    The multiplex tower is stunning. Gorgeous pattern on the skin.

    London is getting such amazing new architecture, I am so jealous.

    Any concrete plans for the Millennium Dome?
    The Millennium Dome has been used for a few events such as New Years Eve Parties, but its currently being transformed into the world's largest indoor arena with a capacity of 26,000, called the O2 Arena. It will be finished by around 2007 and will in 2012 be used for a few Olympic events, eg gymnastics and basketball finals. Obviously actually getting pictures of the arena are hard to come by as its all being built underneath the Millennium Dome itself.

    Heron Tower (203m)






    122 Leadenhall Street (225m)








    Minerva Building (216m)






    Vauxhall Cross Towers (170m)

    Leadenhall looks great --at least in the rendering. Vauxhall is obviously a sex toy.

    Default About that "walkie talkie" proposal

    When I saw the walkie talkie proposal, I was immediately reminded of that ghastly proposed skyscraper replacement for Carnegie Hall back in the 60's. It was just as hideous! (Sorry, don't have a picture of that to post.)

    Nice! Thanks, Nick!

    For future reference, though, please try to minimize images or put them in thumbnails, so that those of us with dialup connections don't overwhelm our computers when trying to view them.

    On another note, the title of this thread ought to be slightly modified, as the discussion is no longer soley about the DIFA tower.

    Speaking from a selfish perspective, TLOZ, I disagree with you on this one. Having high-speed, I pay no time premium to see Nick's great big pix, and I'd like to keep them big. Dial-up is like owning a car you have to crank to start; I bet a minority of this board still has it.

    If the majority of us accommodate you, it may be the Christian thing to do, but we pay a price. Of course, you could do the Christian thing also and pay the price yourself...think of all the money you're saving in internet access fees by being stingy. If we accommodate you, you could say we're subsidizing your thrift.

    Thank you, I just looked at the London thread and it was immediately obvious why london got the olympics over NY.

    And, The Aquatics Center is superb.

    It's the vision thing. Bloomberg and Livingstone both have visions, but Livingstone's are better.

    Looks unstable. Why do some folks think that's good?
