I wonder if that bottom middle window was intentionally shattered to show that it is safety glass?

I agree that I do like the new cladding, maybe even more than the original gold cladding. But the gold cladding made it truly unique from other supertalls around the world. While still unique, it now looks more similar to other supertalls. Oh well, I can't complain. The building's still awesome!

i loved the gold facade and i love this one. do not really have a favorite, both are awesome in their way, the gold one would have been more unique, but the silver one makes it look more like a modern building and more like what we are used from chinese mega towers.

I don't. Gold colour is outdated.

I don't think this glass is designed to break easily. I suppose none of the windows in this building can be opened but it will have an ventilation system?

Love the cladding. Looks old school. Seeing all the new modern glass buildings, we might just need something like this every now and then to add to variety.

Looks like Pelli-esque early 80s postmodernism, which is not a bad thing. That's the only type of postmodernism that works.
