Can anyone identify this building, the city that it's located in?

You can see it starting at 2:18 of this YouTube video.

It's the cone shaped building in the middle of the video.

@JTT,
It's the Gherkin, also know as the Swiss Re building at one time,

Located in London on St.Mary Axe designed by Norman Foster
