Agreed. The Brits have had that very thing for sleek glass panels you and I love so (maybe too?) much.
Some more traditional may find it bland, I still love it because there's some careful material engineering and design behind these sleek transparent things.

It's not an easy or cheap thing to make modern buildings look so sleek. So you got to appreciate it, was it for the tremendous engineering work alone.

The French are just a bunch of Italians that woke up in a very bad mood - Jean Cocteau.
The French? Pathetic! Always obnoxious! The total opposite of the Italians! Paris? Awfully polluted! The unbearable downtown! - (basically unattractive) Carla Bruni.
