  1. The problem with this is that you can already see the sand collecting on the glass. This thing would be impossible to clean, and I don't know what that's supposed to mean, but I thought I ought to bring that up anyway.

    This tower is the epitome of excess.

  2. That's a year's worth of sand and dirt you see.

    This image was actually taken part way through the first full clean of the building.

    If you want to see how they cleaned it, check out this video:


    It takes 6-8 weeks to do a full clean of the building.

  3. I don't care how long it takes to clean. Nothing about this is sustainable.
