'Erotic gherkin' for London skyline

The 41-storey high, round, tapered building, was designed by Lord Foster. Swiss Re building, built on the sight of the 1992 Baltic Exchange bomb. This is what Londoners were used to before the so called Al-Quaida terrorists, 100 pounds of Semtex flattened a large area of St Mary Axe where the Gherkin now stands, thanks to Swiss Re we now have a worthy monument to replace the Exchange
