Modern architecture

The City of London is home to some of the world's most striking modern architecture. Probably the most renowned is the Gherkin (30 St Mary Axe), designed by Norman Foster in 2003 and now famous the world over, but there are many other fantastic buildings to see here too. From the City's tallest skyscraper, the Heron Tower, to the iconic Tower 42 (both which have restaurants from which to enjoy fabulous views) architecture fans won't be disappointed - and there are more ambitious structures currently being built. See the listings below for modern buildings you won't want to miss on your visit.
