It's cold today
I'm ready for my close-up, Mr de Mille

Top Ten

One of my favourite London places, the Gherkin,


came second in a recent poll of modern UK buildings. I think the Gherkin's such a brilliant addition to the London skyline and it comes only just below the Great Court at the British Museum in my Top Ten list of gorgeous buildings.

The official poll results:

1. Eden Project, Cornwall

2. 30 St Mary Axe (the Gherkin), London

3. McLaren Technology Centre, Woking, Surrey

4. Great Court, British Museum, London

5. Gateshead Millennium Bridge

6. Cardiff Millennium Stadium

7. Millennium Bridge, London

8. Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh

9. Selfridges, Birmingham

10. Tate Modern, London
