The Swiss Re Building aka "The Gherkin" is London's first environmentally sustainable skyscraper. The building consumes up to fifty percent less energy than a comparable high profile office tower. It was aerodynamically designed to reduce wind load on the structure. Since it was opened in 2004 the building has become an overnight icon of London.
