30 St. Mary Axe, otherwise known by its more colorful name of “the Gherkin” is one of several #buildings that define the London skyline. Over 35 kilometres of steel were used in the building’s construction. The 18 lifts in the Gherkin have the ability to transport 378 people at a speed of 8 metres per second. If you want to take the stairs, there are 1,037 steps in each of the buildings stairwells.

The architect of 30 St Mary Axe has called for new viewing corridors to guard his creation. Should we be protecting more favourite landmarks, or do away with these rules altogether?
