Well, the Shard has the flattest, clearest and largest panes of glass I've seen on a skyscraper. Lots of glass buildings that aren't tinted still look solid... while others indeed achieve a transparent look. It's all in the details.

I'd say my favourite glazing on a building is on the Royal Bank Plaza here in Toronto, built in 1976. The 14,000 windows were manufactured by Canadian Pittsburgh Industries using 2,500 ounces of pure gold.

Perhaps the title of this thread should be changed to "Post a picture of a building with glass on it".

I guess most people confuse glazing with cladding? I've always thought of glaze as the sheen on glass.

cladding is all of what covers a building, which would include stone, metal, glass, etc.
(wiki article is very basic)

glazing is specifically the glass.

ETA: I think the Shanghai Tower could have the best glazing once it is done :-)

There is great texture on that Rolex building Dubai, but glaze wise it is only average.
