30 St Mary Axe, previously known as the Swiss Re Building and commonly dubbed the Glass Gherkin, is one of the tallest buildings in London, dwarfing some of its older neighbours.

Built on the site of the Baltic Exchange which was destroyed by an IRA bomb in 1992, the building was designed by Foster and Partners and won the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2004.

Internally, its 180m height, is punctuated by a pair of spiralling atria, marked by the darker windows on its exterior.

On the day this photograph was taken, 30 St Mary Axe was temporarily opened to the public for the first time as part of the London Open House weekend in 2004. The building was a blockbuster attraction — so popular with the public that people queued around two city blocks (and over four hours) in order to see inside.
