What glass isn't highly recyclable?

Thanks for putting your finger on it. The new design is definitely cleaner, and quite striking in its engineering chutzpah. But there is something about the old that seems more "sparkly" and bright.

Wow, thanks for the completely pointless, gratuitous swearing. First, art is subjective to begin with (and good architecture is more art than engineering) - so back off. And second, swearing doesn't improve your argument or reasoning. Just makes you appear boorish.

Shame they cannot figure out how to have each side of the cube be a single piece.

I'm no expert, but if you consider the logistics of moving a piece of glass that large through NYC, let alone five of them....it may not be possible currently...

M'eh ultimately it will be covered in bird doo doo so it wont be a problem.

An invisible Apple Store... now there's an interesting idea.

And you're utterly tactless, I guess you can't win everything.

They probably tried that, but then the door wouldn't close. Hmm, maybe they don't have to close the door as they're open 24/7 LOL
