Totally loving the cage, as it were.

Wish the reflection weren't so choppy though.

With this type of facade though, will the building look skeletal, in say a sunset backdrop?

no, because there will be two layers of glass, the outside is what you can see, the look thru glass and the inner layer will be mirrored, so only on the very side you will be able to look thru the building, the inner part of the building will mirror. how exactly it will look can only time tell though, since there is not really anything comparable to my knowledge.

I think the outer glass should be more transparent so that the double-skin effect becomes more visible.

Amazing to think back on Jim Mao's construction and see that it is now the "little Brother" in the group.
