    i'm fairly sure it will look like Tower 7.. The Fosters and Rogers buildings will do as well..

    looks to me like they've just stuck (bonded with structural silicone i guess)the white panel on the outside - hence the strips of tape holding them in place (you wouldn't see them if they slotted the...
