Movie: this timelapse movie by architectural photographer Paul Raftery and director Dan Lowe shows the final stages of construction for London skyscraper The Shard, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano.
Overlooking the Thames, the 72-storey mixed-use tower is currently the tallest building in Europe and is due to be inaugurated in July.
We first published designs for The Shard back in 2009, when construction had just begun - take a look here.
