Great design. Keep the spirit up Tirana!
Is there a reason also why the plates and windows are in an angle? or is it Just design, or is it to catch more sunlight?
Anyway, when the sun goes around the building it will give some nice effects of the shade, all the time different.

The shape of the tower is being called a "super ellipse" - it rises as an elliptical shape but by the time its reached its peak it is rectangular. Apart from looking rather nifty, this gives the tower the ability to create ever-changing shadows giving it a bit more added interest and allowing it to capture maximum light from the sun. From the top corners the fašade slopes inwards further emphasising the towers unusual shape.

The facades appear to be constructed from individual plates of clear and sand coloured glaze which are placed at different angles adding to the towers look and giving it texture, although its more likely the tower is fully glazed and the coloured panels are laid over the top and form balconies and such but it all adds to the illusionary qualities of the towers appearance.

Picture taken today. They placed also 2-3 windows in. So now we can get a pretty good idea how the outside will look.
