The Shard, London city’s newest and highest skyscraper, standing 1016ft above London, shot light beams from its summit to officially mark the completion of its exterior. A selection of 12 lasers and 30 search search lights fired rays from the Shard’s peak with the show culminating in the illumination of the skyscraper itself and the whole ceremony was streamed worldwide on the internet.

Lloyds building, London. This Richard Rogers design the building was innovative when built 20 years ago in having its services such as staircases, lifts, electrical power conduits and water pipes on the outside, leaving an uncluttered space inside. #EPRA holds a January event in this space for the listed real estate sector to consider the coming year.
