You've photographed this so well. You can really see how it bends.

Oh, yes, I remember that! Good perspective shot.

The architects and engineers who designed and signed off on this should have a black mark on their records the rest of their careers for that fiasco.

I don't know why, but the story of this building frying a rich boy's fancy car makes me laugh.
