The Gherkin

One of the most iconic buildings in London: 30 St Mary Axe, popularly known as the “Gherkin”. A great example of high-tech architecture.

But why gherkin? Why did this well-known building get this nickname? A gherkin is basically a pickled miniature cucumber. The cutting-edge cucumber-shaped building is located in London´s primary financial district, The City of London, and is home to many offices and companies as well as restaurants and bars.
