Color lights I guess, since the uncladded floors have them too.

"One WTC Pedestal to Feature Triple-Laminated Glass from Interpane
December 14, 2011
By Sahely Mukerji

The newly designed exterior cladding system of One World Trade Center that will cover the 185-foot tall secure base will be triple laminated, says Kenneth A. Lewis, project manager and director of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) LLP in New York, the architect on the project. "It's low-iron glass with acid-etched finish on the #6 surface," he says. "The total area of laminated glass fins is approximately 106,000 square feet, all triple layer, so, the total glass used is about three times [that], about 318,000 square feet." Interpane Glas of Germany manufactured the glass, which features its Ipasol Bright White coating on #2 and #3 surfaces.

"The nature of the new design of the pedestal is to maintain in David Child's intention," Lewis says. Childs designed the original prismatic glass base of the tower. "We wanted to make it reflecting and refracting, in a luminescent kind of way, with an active surface, depending on the angle you're looking at," Lewis says. "The 13-foot 3-inch fins open and close, and are nominally 24 inches in depth. The fins are all fixed, but depending on where the viewer sees the wall the surface appearance changes. From the corners they are flat, but they open up toward the center, from flat to 60 degrees. Near the bottom the glass is flat, but as it goes up, it also opens up and then closes as it meets the tower shaft creating continuity between the two surfaces..."

It's interesting because in that picture it looks like the base is now squared off completely forming a cube, instead of having the tapered octagonal edges that originally met at the start of the office floors.

I wonder how they'll get the corners to end up looking like that?
