Er...? Did they really install a giant curved reflecting surface in a direction other than north? They're in for some interesting burn marks around that building. They probably should sand the whole facade, so the light gets scattered and not reflected.
Still, must've been quite a sight when the car began to melt.

Just up the road from my office, this is.

Believe me, when you walk down the road at certain times of the day, it's like walking into a furnace.

When the weather is cold, people stand in groups on the pavement outside the barber shop to get warm!

Yeah, the trim on those Roman boats would have been totally messed up. Who's cool now, Romans? :lol:

Apparently, there is/was a camera crew up there, waiting for the sun to come out! :mrgreen:

Probably planning it completely new was too expensive, so they decided to build up on another plan.
Somewhere around there someone got the plans for a solar plant instead of an office building. Happens all the time.

Surely all the office workers could hold aloft bread - on toasting forks - and marshmallows etc., during their lunch break?
