THE BIG BLUE (2010)
with its big blue erectness thrusting upwards into the London skyline the skyscraper known locally as the blue penis but also the gherkin is one of London's favourite modern buildings and skyscrapers. It is located at 30 St Mary Axe in the Square mile area of London, Postcode EC3A 8EP. The Gherkin made its debut in 2004 and was designed by Foster and Partners. It stands 180 metres tall and blends in with the city skyline very nicely. My photo shows it bursting up from the bowels of the Tower of London
