The Shard was designed by italian architect Renzo Piano. The building stands at approximately 309 metres high. The Shard is currently the tallest building in the European Union. The View from The Shard was officially opened on the 1st February 2013.
For this event they commissioned an artist to do a painted design with the intention to create a silk scarf. Below shows the results of what was created for them, which Beckford Silk then put into coloured layers for screen printing.
