Poorly designed building

There's a building in London that reflects light onto the ground at a certain time of day and it gets really hot. This guy parked his jaguar in the spot while he had a meeting. He returned to find his car had melted from the heat.
This building has also cracked shop tiles and is apparently hot enough to fry an egg.

The guys face though

Yeah, on the one day a year that it's actually sunny in Britain, I'm sure this will cause some real problems.

Dunno man, seems pretty useful if you're out in the city and want to cook a warm meal.

If they stuck a few solar panels at the focal point I wonder how much electricity it would make...

this is caused by a parabolic reflector. the diagram i drew you will explain it. i know it looks like a kindergardener drew it, but you damn well beter enjoy it. i put effort in it. light comes in, gets reflected by the curve, and most of the rays end up in the same exact spot. this ends up superheating anything in that area.


there was a case i heard about with a hotel that was slightly curved, and the focus of the parabolic reflector was on the pool. people would try to tan and their hair would set on fire. im not 100% sure about this story, cause my architecture teacher was a jackass. complete bitch, got me in trouble for monopolizing the short chair supply in the room. the desks are short and the chairs are tall and there is a limited supply of short chairs and i needed some money to print an essay. she banned me from using short chairs.

I hate a lot of architecture now, just because of the popular concave designs and things like this where people forget basics, this happened not too long ago in America, a building reflected the sun and increased its focus and it heated a swimming pool and started burning people. These buildings are privately owned so it's the guy who pays for it's personal preference but if people had a choice of 20 designs for a building there would be much better skyscrapers around.

Why does everyone put a ******* ******* of glass on their buildings nowadays?

I always thought it was to reflect the sun and lighten up the streets, otherwise we'd be really shadowy.

And to think, Jaguars to the British are like Chevys to Americans!

except were it a Chevy, everything around the car would have melted...but not the car

just an fyi, the reason this happened is the curvature of the building but could have been avoided if the used a different type of glass, they didn't because they had already gone waaay over budget

Also there was meant to be balconies all over the building to stop the light, but the builders decided " **** that"
