well, cladding is like a mirror, if you put a green paper in front of it, the "mirror" looks green. If you put a blue paper in front of it, it looks blue. That's refering to this shot which the background is a green mountain. If you take pics from kowloon, the building got reflection of the blue sky. Of couse, it can be light-blue or kind of silver if the weather is cloudy.
And that "AIG" is a large screen.

So have AIG moved into the building yet, or is the inside still being done? (It's so easy to think that when a building is structurally complete that is it, but it can be alot longer after that until people actually use it)

The opening ceremony took place on Oct. 6th (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=293) but it looks like the building is not occupied yet.

AIG Tower and Footbridge
AIG Global Real Estate Investment Corp.
Architect: Skidmore Owings & Merrill
Gross Floor Area: 366,000 sf / 34,000 sm
Height: 604 ft / 185 m
Bridge Span: 150 ft / 46 m

This 40-story office tower includes parking for 190 cars and pedestrian bridges linking the tower to the Hong Kong network. The partially-enclosed bridge is a fully triangulated asymmetrical box truss spanning 150 ft (46 m). S-shaped in plan, the exposed truss diagonals from which the bridges are formed provide a striking architectural expression.
