You may have heard that there is a very pointy shiny tall building officially ‘opening’* this week. To mark the inauguration of the our newest landmark, this week’s Time Out magazine is dedicated to our city’s skyline – the good, the bad and the downright ugly. Find out your fave (and most hated) buildings, discover the secrets to creating an icon and read all about London’s architectural future.

This week’s Time Out Magazine is out tomorrow – to get Time Out delivered to your door, subscribe here.

*It won’t actually be open to the public until February 2013 but you can buy tickets to View From the Shard here.
