Is that the lighting scheme they will be using? Lighting up the building from the bottom, or it's just meanwhile? Buildings usually have integrated lightning. For SWFC I would personally emphasize the hole and the hyperbolic edges.

View from the SWFC observation deck on September 9,2008 - foggy day ...credit by jlqxlx











































__________________
We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

At the bottom of the long V shape of SWFC I can clearly see the change in surface height (or around the V shape rather) I wonder if its like 2 layers of glasses there or...

Those low-rises with the red/blue roofs look terrible.

I saw that. I like observation decks and being up that high...inside. I guess a lot of people must live without a fear of heights.
