Maybe they'll run out of copper cladding and have to use plain normal glass on the top floors? XD

The color is one of the reasons why, this is one of my favorite buildings. Now I'm waiting for that purple glass to go up lol.

A title change seems to be in order then.

I don't even care for it ever being a fashion, it's just not half as appealing to the eye as light, transparent or reflective blue glass. Even the proposed white-ish or an aluminium facade would have looked way better here. Or limestone. Or bricks. Or... Whatever.

Just no copper glass anymore, ever, please!
Or no, this is very good colour.
Copper-gold between a bush of grey and blue-green is a nice contrast.
It looks amasing at sunset!

I hope you understand what i mean.
But these reasons can't justify removal of the braces with which this tower looked a hell more beautiful. For me the answer is simple they are cutting expenses since as someone said braces are very expensive part of the design (they did the same in NYC with wtc3 to make it cheaper). Still it's impressive they are even going to complete it since as one of the insiders informed us long time ago it hasn't been sure if they will even have the money to finish it.
