6.3/10

30 St Mary Axe er en bygning i Londons finansdistrikt, City of London. Uformelt er den kendt som The Gherkin ("Agurken"), samt også The Swiss Re Tower, Swiss Re Building, Swiss Re Centre og Swiss Re, efter sin ejer, der har hovedkontor i bygningen.

Bygningen er 180 meter høj, hvilket gør den til den næsthøjeste bygning i City of London, efter Tower 42, og den sjettehøjeste i hele London. Den er berømt for sin vovede arkitektur ved Norman Foster og dennes tidligere forretningspartner Ken Shuttleworth, og blev opført af entreprenørfirmaet Skanska fra 2001 til 2004.

Bygningen har 24.000 stykker glas, der svarer til fem fodboldbaner. Hver etage roterer 5 grader i forhold til den foregående.

The site of the famous Gherkin was formerly occupied by the Baltic Exchange, a historic building which was damaged by an IRA bomb in 1992.

Run around in the revolving doors so you can say you have been inside, much to the annoyance of the security guards....

My opinion, The Gherkin is the most impressive building in London, and looks great at night from Heron Tower.

One of the most iconic London landmarks, located just a few yards down Liverpool Street. Enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of London while enjoying a coffee on the top floor.

Technically, this is the Swiss Re building, but everyone calls it the Gherkin, for obvious reasons. Or a torpedo, or a cigar...Entry is by employment with Swiss Re, or a private table at 40/30

One of the best looking new buildings in London, and a very futuristic monument on the horizon. Check out the concave mirror or the Inside-Out Building nearby.

If you can get to the restaurant / bar at the top, do. Most breathtaking views of London I've ever seen, glorious watching-the-sun-set location, and not a bad drinks menu either

The Baltic Exchange once stood here. From an 1823 coffee house group keen to combat ‘wild gambling’ in commodities, it is now the world’s most important market for shipping. Find your maritime story.

Финансовый центр Лондона. Штаб-квартира компании Swiss Re. Официальное название 41-этажного небоскреба "30 St Mary Axe"/"Сент-Мэри Экс 30", но аборигены называют его «Огурец» (англ. The Gherkin)

30 St Mary Axe ou le "Cornichon" est le premier gratte-ciel écologique du pays. Au dernier étage, il y a un bar avec une vue à 360° sur Londres! Profitez du paysage avec un bon thé.
