The one thing I like in this cladding is that those aluminum laths between glass doesn't make whole cladding looks worse. Usually I hate aluminum laths...

For one thing it does make the cladding more unique. It will look even better once fully cladded.

It's looking great, but the thread title says 69 floors and then it says 70 floors in the first page... I'm assuming it will be 70?
