Skyline: five demands for London


Another aspect of tall buildings that is not considered is the shadow they cast, particularly in Northern climes such as Britain, where the sun never rises more than 60 degrees above the horizon. I once lived in a south-facing flat that was overshadowed by a distant skyscraper, and never got any sunlight except in June. A very depressing experience.
