That could be difficult.

Why?

mr.G
16-06-2005, 09:54:21

Goign to see another gherkin?

Funko
16-06-2005, 09:59:16
What are you doing?

Do you want to tell us a specific place and time where you'll be so we can deliberately avoid it?

mr.G
16-06-2005, 10:02:54

have to see some buildings with a colleague, and drive back a golf cabrio he bought in London.

Funko

Tizzy
16-06-2005, 10:07:17
I'm sure you could get a lot of bru in a Golf Cabrio

mr.G
16-06-2005, 10:11:58
bastard bought it for 1 euro.
well he is buying the tickets so mainly that is the price of the car, man I hate him.

Funko
16-06-2005, 10:21:03
The bru would be worth more than the car.

Where are you guys staying?

mr.G
16-06-2005, 10:24:27
A friend of his (the owner of the car) has a appartment in Notting Hill I suppose, he is a filthy rich bastard.

Funko
16-06-2005, 10:27:29

I'll let someone else make the obvious reference here

Funko
16-06-2005, 17:00:46
It looks like a gherkin?

Tizzy
16-06-2005, 17:01:27
"Jep, it's a gherkin"

mr.G
16-06-2005, 18:58:45

Obviously it's a missile designed to blow up rogue continents.

Oerdin
16-06-2005, 20:07:45
I thought it was a dildo for Titans.

mr.G
16-06-2005, 22:30:12
in the middle of London?
you are insane

Tizzy
16-06-2005, 22:31:02
Well, where else would it be?

mr.G
16-06-2005, 22:33:12
a dildo for Titans, in titania of course.
tssssssssk tsssssssssk tss tss tssssssk

Tizzy
16-06-2005, 22:36:12
Far too obvious, they'd have to put it somewhere else :rolleyes:

mr.G
16-06-2005, 22:39:43

Tizzy
16-06-2005, 22:41:58

looks like an IM Pei design, can you give me the link?

Provost Harrison
16-06-2005, 22:53:34
Yeah sure, http://www.londonbridgetower.com/

It's been approved for construction...

mr.G
16-06-2005, 22:55:36
Renzo Piano, one of my heros

he did the "centre pompidooooooooodidoooooooooo" with richard rogers (Lloyds)

mr.G
16-06-2005, 22:56:02
and ehhh...thanks, nice article

Provost Harrison
16-06-2005, 23:14:42
I'm looking forward to it's construction...I think London could do with more buildings like this (both aesthetically and practically - there just isn't enough floorspace in the capital). There are quite a few other buildings planned too!

Funko
16-06-2005, 23:26:18
Renzo Piano- cool name

Provost Harrison
17-06-2005, 00:00:05
Well it is Italian for soft...so would that make him Mr Soft?

Architecture! May it all burn in hell.

It looks very feng shui. Like it's channelling energy into the heart of London.

Provost Harrison
17-06-2005, 02:43:31
It's a building that is probably structurally sturdy because of it's tapered shape hence it is a popular shape...Feng Shui is a load of old bollocks...

Oerdin
17-06-2005, 02:57:18
It looks slightly like the TransAmerica building.

Built in 1972 and it has aged well unlike most other designs from that decade.
