Right, I know somebody here knows or can find out:
How did anyone get to be an architect without understanding the properties of curved glass?
How does a skyscraper melt a car?
maybe it was an evil architect working up to a world-domination plan of building-based lasers?
To be honest, that makes more sense to me than the idea that no-one in the architect's office, the developer's office, the planning office or the site inspection people had any understanding of what happens if you shine a light on curved glass.
I know the first thing I would have said, on being shown a plan for a curved face on a building, would have been "Um, isn't that going to function as a giant concave mirror? Have you worked out where the focus is going to be?"
