Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat
CTBUH Conference Video:
Reaching New Heights: The Shard
Irvine Sellar, Founder, Sellar Property


June 12, 2013
London, United Kingdom

There was perhaps no better example of a tall building that encapsulates the overall conference theme than The Shard. Subject to numerous planning enquiries and great scrutiny over a decade on its appropriateness to the UK capital, it now stands proud as the tallest building in Europe. Already it seems to have captured the excitement and imagination of the public. In this presentation, we heard from the man who made it happen, on his motivations for building Europe’s tallest, the challenges overcome in the process, and how London, as a global city, needs to moderate between the past and future.
