EPIC night reflection- the wavy effect actually serves this tower well come nightfall! Stunning

And just think how that wavy effect will look when the tower is fully clad! Fantastic!

Challenge to all the mor*ns who think there is such a thing as perfectly flat plate glass panels: make a photograph under similar conditions from you favourite western uber-building and post it here. Until then such posts highlight a lack of IQ on the part of the poster.

whoa! Opinion COMPLETELY changed on this. Its golden!!! :0

@celatus


Believe it or not, there are towers with perfect glass that show no visible wavy effect- the shard comes to mind.

I like the wavy effect in this though- at night it gives a beautiful rippling effect...

For the interests of comparison:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/rogersg/5143169610/

As this picture shows there is no wavy effect on the shards glass- the picture you show is deceiving, it shows NO waving on individual panels, just a 'fragmented reflection' effect from the angle of the multiple panels of glass. If you look at the reflection on each panel of the shards glass it is perfect- zero wave effect. I can can vouch for this, as I've seen it countless times. If you look at mercury's cladding each panel shows a wavy effect- while some might not like this, it was never an issue for me. My main problem with mercury city tower was it's colour, and turns out I kinda like it (very much so at night). Millions has been spent on the shard's glass.

I just drove through Knoxville Tennessee and saw a gold/copper 'thing'. Looked straight out of the 70's!

Tack o rama.

Mercury City looks good at certain times of day/night. I did not like the idea of something so drastically different to the other buildings in the CBD at first, now I think it was a good idea! Add 20 more 'unique' supertalls and it would be the most interesting skyline in the world.
