A Night the Glass Panels Reflect New Perspectives

New perspectives open up as night falls and the distraction of city views beyond are eclipsed by the reflections of myriad chandeliers and elusive silhouettes of mashrabiyas.  Different depths are visible in the glass panels, giving an effect similar to a three-sided mirror.  One has the incredible feeling of being inside a giant glass cube afloat in space.   At five stories high and without any bracing, the glass curtain wall is apparently the tallest of its kind in the world.   Higher ones are braced with pipes.
