Distant Shard View from the East by Edmund Sumner

We don't usually publish single photographs on Dezeen, but we really like this atmospheric shot by photographer Edmund Sumner showing London skyscraper The Shard framed by the towers of Canary Wharf in the east.

The UK's tallest building was designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano. See the full-sized image here.

Read more about The Shard, including an interview conducted with Piano before construction started.

    Cool. Reminds me of Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner.

  • Deckard

    Blade Runner it is.

  • Sebastien

    Blade Runner it truly is.

  • One photo gets a feature article?, come on dezeen, you guys are bit infatuated with Ed.

    Let’s see some more images!

  • blah

    A single photo with no content gets published now? Your content has been going downhill for ages. Who is editing there?!

    Is it even a real photo? Buildings in the front look pretty high.
