490. 30 St Mary Axe, London


Dear Mark,

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.

Best regards.
