The Shard will open today it is something that I have been keeping an eye on. Londons newest landmark and Europes tallest skyscrapper, is expected to be unveiled with a spectacular laser light show at 10 pm this evening. The Shard is funded by a Qatari consortium that includes; Qatar National Bank, QInvest, Qatari Islamic Bank and the Qatari developer Barwa Real Estate. The inaugaration of The Shard will be attended by the prime minister of Qatar, Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabor Al Thani, and The Duke of York.
The Shard is apart of the development in the London Bridge Quarter, which is just the start of new awe inspiring architecture to come to London.
