Beauty comes in many forms, even Gherkin-shaped

It’s hard to choose just one thing of beauty in Britain, as you asked last week (Voxpop, DW 2 April).

But one thing I enjoy seeing on pretty much a daily basis,

which never ceases to please my eye, is 30 St Mary Axe, also known as the Gherkin. My gallery is in east London, so I’m lucky to see it from many different angles and viewpoints.

It also reminds me of a giant Fabergé egg. It is undoubtedly one of London’s most striking buildings, and in a city awash with so many drab and dreary buildings, it’s a beautiful sight to behold.
