All right so maybe im having a dumb blonde moment, but the sun still sets in the west im sure. It will shine on the building and reflect all the light backwards back on the west. Its really just semantics now.

Great building, but joking aside, do they take sun glare into effect when they build super reflective buildings, and you have roads and highways at the base. Gehry's Disney building had to have its facade toned down because it was causing havok on the street with sun glare. Is this a concern for designers or an afterthought?
