I don't like openable windows on flat facades, it ruins their clean look.

Yeah, same problem as the East Pacific Center in Shenzen, very sleek look in the renders, but once done with all its windows open it looks like a typhoon hit it.

They could have just opened them from the top (i.e. Have the openings face up).

Though, hat may limit airflow? Does this building have some kind of special climate control (automatically adjusting windows to take in air for cooling purposes)? That's the only time I've ever known large buildings to have openable windows.

I'm assuming one wouldn't open a window during a rainstorm...

It'll look sleek once the weather cools and they can close the windows!
