Shard cartoon. Modern architecture cartoon
This cartoon was drawn at the time of the building of the Shard (architect- Renzo Piano) in London
Cartoon showing architects in their office looking out at a cityscape that includes modern architecture and modern buildings.
One of the modern buildings looks like a salt cellar.
The architects realise that the builders have taken their salt cellar by mistake, instead of the architectural model.
A cartoon about the trend in modern architecture for oddly shaped buildings. Such unconventionally shaped buildings include the ‘Gherkin‘ and the Shard of Glass. Not to mention Anish Kapoor’s Orbit tower and City Hall.
Soon cities like London will end up looking as though they are full of modernist architecture in the form of giant kitchen utensils (the cheese grater) and cruet sets or condiment sets (salt cellars and pepper pots).
