I disagree. I think flaunting the building is the best way to go. It really pisses off the haters out there.

Just turn on the beacon and light the mast blue. That's it.
I agree, something somber and respectful. Flashy can be saved for another day

9/11: Elegant lighting, no flashiness.

7/4: Freaking go for it all.

No, every panel has an internal machinery to open/close the paired fins whenever it is required. It is located on the bottom.

Do you know what's going on with the spire right now and why there are a few cables hanging vertically on it now?

The spire is huge. It's just that the building is enormous on its own. 200' by 200'
