What is the source of the information for the second correction?

Materials are only materials for the facade of structures unless you know what the internal structures of each of these towers are.

And, "glass" is only used for curtain-wall glass-faced structures. You don't add "glass" for everything just because it has windows or "glass" would be a facade material for every building.

And, just like everything else, unless building materials are obvious, you need a source for them, as well. I can't tell, for instance, that that skyscraper is faced in granite stone.

The second one source is emporis http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/bu/?id=rioothonpalace-riodejaneiro-brazil

Many buildings in Brazil use Granit spread in facade and in interior decoration. I understand the problem wih glass, I would ask only when glass curtain would be in future.

Neiborhood is not Sé, the correct is Patriarca, as the building stays at Praca Patriarca, Patriarca Place. Thanks.
