…what would London’s skyline look like?
Well, a little like this:
I’ve roughly compared the height of the Gherkin (180m) to the Burj Dubai (818m) to scale the source image. Obviously I’ve guessed where it might be located if it were to have been built here. In reality, I doubt London’s soil would be able to support the building as it is largely made of concrete and would probably sink in London’s clay.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
