I would have preferred the white, but the black looks great in your pic @kora

The ultimate architectural coup would have been to have a dynamic material that could be white on sunny blue sky days and black on white/gray sky days.
Hot Wheels has had that technology for decades! I remember playing with my colour changing cars as a kid, warm them up and they change colour until they cool back down again.

That would be interesting. Just like the Hot Wheels cars I had as a kid that changed colour in the sun.

Edit: Rollerstud thinking the same thing!

Wonder if there’s a building somewhere on earth that’s done this?

Hi All,
Was DT on the Wkd. This Project sure Stands Out by a Long Shot. What 10 Flrs to Go. Figure by the Summer sometime it will Top Off, Its what Another 2 Yrs for the
Bldg to B Completed on the Insides. Guess the Money to Buy a Unit will B from the Local Brinks Truck. Cash to Spare. Between Telus, Petro Cda, Hanover,and Encana Bldgs This Area Looks Pretty Good for the Sky Line.
Tnx,
Operater.

Totally forgot about those hot wheel cars!.....Changing colors by temperature. The tower could different color from summer to winter, or even night to day. Doable with the right amount of coin I guess.
