    A touch of Sun...

    Wow! It has happened! Something I used to think
    about after reading a Clarke story about south
    American football and a program with a reflective
    surface. A glazed tower has been built in London
    with a curved front surface.

    When the Sun has been out at certain angles, Cars
    have been scorched, windows melted, an entrance
    carpet in a shop has a black burn mark! Heh.

    Some Architects did not think deeply enough
    did they.

    Sunshine in London? Obviously science fiction.

    (I remember that short story, I had forgotten it was Clarke)

    Link to a story on the building
