The Shard is a pyramid-shaped skyscraper located in London, England. At 1,020 feet it is not only the tallest building in the United Kingdom but in the entire European Union. Now, in a world without people, how long will it stand without maintenance?
125 years after people: The land around it floods and reverts to swamp. It sinks a few feet in to the ground and begins to corrode at it's base.
200 years after people. The Shard still stands in what used to be London but two centuries of neglect have taken its toll on the building. For many decades the Thames has flooded the abandoned city of London and the flood-waters weakened the Shard's foundational pilings. Finally the pilings become too weak to hold up the building and the Shard collapses.
