Strangely enough, despite being monstrously wide, the building won't appear to be as big as it is because of the even more monstrously wide Harbourside next to it.

IIC's glass is forever changing colour and it's not just individual photos with their hues & saturations, as for example Shanghai's World Finanacial Center's cladding is uniform colour all the way (just sometimes darker, sometimes lighter depending on weather & time of day).

...but ICC's glass changes from green, to aqua to light blue to dark blue to silver. Really cool

Thanks guys for all the update pics.
