Westhafen Tower Frankfurt

The glazing has the typical structure of an applewine glass. Applewin is like the nationaldrink of Frankfurt.

They are Kent based organisation who do all sorts of double glazing. If you look at the review centre sourced below, they have a much better rating than Anglian or Everest.

I don't care if it's U/C or not. There's enough glass on the building in Brisbane to see if it looks good or not - and it's better than 90% of the shit in this thread.

Yeah, and "Best Glazing on a Building" like a donut? I thought the term was "glass curtain" wall, but then, I guess polished granite and marble can be considered glazing.
