The construction is getting more and more interesting!!! They started the facade and they put the first piece to join the towers!!

And the structure company uploaded these pics to the building's profile in facebook yesterday:

En facebook han puesto fotos nuevas, al final sí que han hecho el vuelo ese con una estructura de acero, que no sé si es temporal, solo para encofrar el hormigón, o ya es la estructura en sí del forjado:

The facade shows very diverse tonalities depending on the time, the weather, the orientation.

I see the fun part, linking the two towers, is about to start.

Thanks for the update

At this point the construction is totally different and very complicated, so it has slow down.

Esta es del lunes - los ventanales traseros


Estas son de hoy - un día lluvioso, se ve la estructura que montaron en la torre poniente

Looks tacky, something out of 90s' Jakarta, so for Benidorm it fits right in :P
I wouldn't see too much into it at this stage though, protective covers and bad weather never really show the final outcome.

I don't like that glass color, but just to deffend the architect's work, as an architecture student, I have to say that right now in Spain, architecture experts blame that kind of renders showing blue glass or blue skies, it's also very unpopular to cover the construction materials with better looking facade materials that doesn't have any other use than making the building look better, good architecture is suposed to be sincere, cheap, without ornaments (painting the concrete is lame), ecological (glazed buildings are the worst choice), respectfull with the evolution of local architecture, etc. and from that point of view, Benidorm's architecture is becoming really admired among architecture experts in recent architecture books even admiting it doesn't look nice and sometimes it's tacky, but, as Benidorm is traditionally tacky, so that's coherent.
According to these critics, Santiago Calatrava is an anti-architect, Madrid's Cuatro Torres is crappy architecture, only one of the 4 towers (the black one) has good critics, and the architecture of Dubai is the worst in the world.

Cool. The facade makes me think of the Mandalay Bay resort in Vegas.

I don't know much about current architecture education in Spain, but i am teaching design for architect students at the budapest technical university, and here this would still be concidered poor design. it follows (or at least seems to follow) principles from the 70's-80's that once already failed.
