The fit-and-finish of the soffit/underside is pretty bad. And it's disappointing that the rounded corner is made up of planar glass panels instead of curved glass. There's definitely been some cost-cutting here. Too bad.
The pairs (and threes and quads), are built because it saves the costs on deisgn.

Not just in construction, but also with maintenance costs.
