Travel around London and the 'Gherkin'appears continuously on your horizon; it is as if the streets of the capital radiate from the site. The building's form has captured the public imagination partly because the construction process was a great London street performance. We knew it was coming, then saw it rapidly appear, like some time-lapse film projected at the end of our street. Construction in reverse: a lattice sculpture sheathed from within.
