Why does the cladding have different colors? Red circled part is darker than the yellow circled part.

I can see the pattern though, the darker glasses are under ther balcony whereas the glasses not under the balcony are bright. Maybe darker glasses haven't taken cover off them or they're meant to be like that for better illusion effect.

I think some of the glass has a coating on it, and some doesn't. It will be removed. (trump had this too)

and I love pink floyd's Animals!

No the glass is different, it is primarily for thermal considerations but also adds to the texture.
