Located in central London, the Swiss Re Tower (officially called 30 St. Mary Axe) was designed by architect Norman Foster and completed in 2004. The 40-story skyscraper tapers at its base and expands as it rises before narrowing to a dome. The building’s reflective glass exterior, patterned in blue and green panels, glitters in the light, creating optical patterns that change with distance and perspective. The building is popularly called « the gherkin » for its unusual shape.
