In this picture, cladding looks horrible in my opinion. Material looks like plastic more than glass. Is this much distortion of the light normal?

fox that is really odd and for some odd reason it doesnt look normal. It looks like the glass is warped?!?! The only thing I can think of but I doubt the building is constructed this way is if it double skinned. That way, the interior facade could cause some possible distortion to the exterior facade? Or they just haven't peeled the plastic off the window lol.

The cladding is still covered by a protective plastic layer.

It will look better when they take it off.

Anybody know what the circles on the underside of the Skybridge are for? Looks like there is also a linear track for a cleaning gantry to move along.

You made me think of the renders that showed the underside of the overhang being used as a screen. If they were to exploit a rectangular screen (instead of a rectangle with one fourth missing), could they possibly arrange a big sliding panel to fill the gap towards the inside of the building? Just fancying.

From what I know, those circles will be observation "windows" - glass floor panel will be installed at those circles, just like CN tower in Toronto.
