The jagged form of the Shard, western Europe’s tallest building, is set to compete with the piscene curves of the London Olympics swimming pool for the title of best British architecture for 2014. Both structures have been selected on the longlist for the Stirling prize, the £20,000 annual gong awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects (Riba).
