It does look awful. Some polishing could make it more digestible.

I don't understand all the fuzz around the blow-through. It's inconsequential. And in fact, if it wasn't for that little feature, the building would be too bland to digest.

Agreed, it's inconsequential and NOT DONE YET. So you can all take your opinions of the unfinished blow through and shove them you know where. Come back to me with a real opinion once the work is complete, that's when we can all sit down and discuss the merits of how it has been handled.

How are they going to wash these windows anyway? When they hang from ropes on the roof, it must extend beyond the widest part of the frustums, meaning once they get to the narrow part, the platform will be at least five feet from the glass.
That's going to be awkward. I'm sure they considered this, but I cant picture the solution, besides a really long handle squeegee.

haha. you have to wonder about a lot of modern day designs, especially in Asia. It's getting crazier and crazier as far as design goes. For example these 'randomly stacked books' highrises. It's usually the first thing I think of..."How are they ever gonna clean that f'er"

Unless I'm way off base here, I can think of a pretty big "pain in the ass window washing job:"

Probably slowly replacing the broken panes and or double checking the seal.

^GEMS 2 is on hold indefinitely due to non-payment. Many unpaid parties on that project, unfortunately.
