22 Bishopsgate is the tallest tower at the heart of the City of London’s financial district. Shaped to respect townscape views, it’s twenty-three-sided, faceted glass form makes a strong and serene backdrop to the surrounding articulated towers and to the historic fabric of the Bank of England Conservation Area.
