Nice images, but they are quite a clear statement they've gone for the wrong kind of facade here. I'd much prefer a more reflective cladding to hide the ugly concrete structures of each floor.

Are you confusing the scratch protection on the inside of each window for the side of a concrete slab? Also, the windows haven't been properly cleaned. When the protective film comes off, and the whole building gets a wipe down, I think you'll find it much nicer to look at

That last image is quite a piece of art. Wow!I am actually dumbstruck looking at how this building is impacting the London skyline all rather the Western Europe.
