Two-three? Maybe? It hasn't been very consistent, yet.

I think the look of the glass is due to some sort of polaroid filter Imre may have on his camera. Imre, can you confirm this?

You mean a polarizing filter? That's a pretty good idea; that could easily have the splotchy-window effect.

Maybe they should have used the glass the Trump tower in Chicago is using, those windows seem to be doing pretty well for staying clean.

No it isnt. Cleaning devices will be installed in mechanical floors as far as I know. Was also wondering how they will clad those remaining two floors. They will have to use some mini crane or something like that

Yes, becouse Chicago is located in a desert eviroment with a lot of sand/dust in the air and a high level of humidity.

Since the other person who whas counting the panels stopped or is away or something I decided to continue. I will also add the date from start of the facade to 22 july.

If there's an X under estimate it means that there are no pictures of that day or I whas unable to count them.

*edit* forgot to add this

167 panels for current floors
3.8 days/floor
average all days counting 44 panels/day
average last 7 days 42 panels/day
