I agree. Wavy copper!

This cladding will make Mercury City Tower look like the planet Mercury! Now I get it.

Lots of progress on the glass. I was afraid they were just putting some up as a test or a small sampling to showcase it. But looks like they're in full swing.

Not yet sold on the white striping though. Looks pretty tacky so far.

Perfectly flat glass is certainly harder to make and perhaps more prestigious because of that. But does that actually make it look better?

Aluminum ceilings were considered really fancy at the end of the Victorian age. They even cost more than a gold ceiling. Did that make them better architecturally? A debatable point for sure.

Personally, I love the glass on this building. It will look amazing, and not just because of an idea in our heads about expensive being better.

Yes.

There is a hotel in Charlotte North Carolina USA called the Omni.

I love the design, but the black glass is so wavy, it ruins the pyramid look. Instead all I see is black trash bags stretched across frames. Flatter glass is better glass and I don't think that is up for debate.

As for the color, it certainly will stand out in that group of sky scrapers! Maybe the world! I am holding up a gold watch next to my computer screen, and it looks nothing like the cladding on this tower.

Who told you the cladding was going to be gold? It is copper/orange

Then posts 747, 748, 749 on page 38.

It's different, which is more than you can say for many skyscrapers these days. I mean, how many other orange supertalls are there? The colours of the towers in this cluster clash IMO though. Wouldve preferred it to be different somewhere else.
