I agree. I hope that is just to show lighting effects or reflect from the sun too!

It looks ok, but I hope there's something thick and strong in there holding up the building, I don't want the US to beat Dubai in the first tower fall over (on its own) accident.

A lot of people on this board seem to have no respect at all for engineers. These are world class people; don't you think they know what they are doing? Don't you think that they add a big margin of safety when they design these things? The buildings in Dubai are not going to just fall over, and neither will this.

If i remember from one of the previous article the glass is clear. I think they are just showing it in gold so you can see more of the detail looking from outside in.

I agree. I also felt that entrance needs some redesign. Museum entrance resemblance is a good one.
