One of the buildings that my dad wanted to see when he was here in London last week was the ‘Walkie Talkie’ building, because of its unusual shape
This building has a major design flaw however, and it’s not that the fact that it is top heavy. During the summer this building burnt a car!A Jaguar parked near the building started to melt because the building created a curve with its series of flat windows. These acted like mirrors, the reflections all converging at one point, focusing and concentrating the light which melted the car’s paint!
This is what the building looked like back in September, however the windows have all now had shades added so nothing else will melt!
