The siding on the concrete part is very subtle, but it fits the design well. This tower is going to look so good, especially next to the lighthouse tower.

It's not the glass, is the lack of interiour walls.

No it's NOT.

"Explain" me this: Why you can see inside from the window in the night (with lights on) but not during the day? Or from inside, you can see outside during the day, but not during the night.

Excellent method of construction, plus now i see this will be an energy efficient tower, at least in terms of natural lighting.
