The large sides of skyscrapers would make ideal locations
for graffiti, but cannot until now be accessed.
A swarm of 3x 'graffiti drones' each fitted with controlled
spray nozzles is envisaged.
One for cyan, one magenta and one yellow. The image is
loaded into software that generates a flight
path and spray
plan for each drone.
They will fly in rows from top left to bottom right, just like
a printer or TV image, rendering the picture onto the
30 St Mary Axe

||Why is this being implemented with raster-scan graphics as opposed to the (cleaner and more economical) vector graphics?
Nice idea though

No. If the owner of the property lets you do it, it's Street Art.
If they don't, it's vandalism.
||Incidentally, to the best of my knowledge, the Gherkin doesn't
have a side. However, there's nothing apart from money to
prevent someone from building a couple of astronomical
observatories <link>on opposite sides of the Gherkin's base.
||Re vector graphics: I did think about that, would be great
for more cartoon / text heavy content, but not as good for
images I thought. Though I could be wrong here.

comprising of an inside and an outside.
