True, but i guess the photographer could not wait for them to clean it all up since it takes quite a while!

awesome, thanks to norman y and benken

I can see few glass panels missing here and there indicating not 100% complete on the finishing touches.

The SWFC photos will look even more perfect when they wash the exterior of the tower one time all over and fit the remaining glasses in.

i'm still missing the original designed one. it just looks perfect, it's like 1000 times better for me than the one we have today. the politics and the nationalism ruined the tower.

I agree, I much prefer the circle...I think the curve of the circle harmonizes better w/ the curves of the building. But, it's still a great looking building.

That was happiness then.
