This building is so great, there ought to be a symposium for people to come and talk about it. There will be many panels at this symposium, but I have no doubt that The Panel on Panels will be the best-attended of them all.

I actually thought the glass would be bluish like it does in the renders, but I like this glass more.

Yeap, me too. I thought that the final color, is more similar to the protective film.

Anyway, this glass is impressive.

Yeah that glass is slowly changing my mind, about the ugly shape of this building.

Well I personally, despite being a hardcore box lover, love this building. I think that with it's top it's essentially a thinner and far more balanced version of the Citigroup Center. This better balance in proportions is the difference between the ugly Citigroup Center and the beautiful 157

This cladding is very strange. The cladding on the east half is black and silver while the classing on the west half is blue and white.

Moreover the cladding on the north side is plain light blue glass while on the west facing side of the building it is strongly colored panels. What an amazing set if different cladding styles.

But I don't think I've ever seen two different cladding styles on a building as we are seeing with this building. Very, very strange.

Yeah you're right, it's kinda unusual! But I hope that will have a positive effect.

You're right, it's weird, but I like it
