In London, a Building’s Reflected Light Cooks a Car



In the past several hours, no fewer than a dozen people have sent me links to a story out of London about a reflective glass building that has melted a Jaguar. This gives me an idea:

“The developer has moved very quickly to meet and discuss with anyone affected,” the City of London Corporation said in a statement on its website. “They have compensated a car owner, spoken to local businesses and explored temporary solutions, perhaps including partial screening.”

So that’s it! Who cares about a museum and art, right? Cars! Dallasites love their cars. All we need is for someone to park a nice car in the path of Museum Tower’s reflected radiation. Then we’ll get some movement on this issue. If we only knew someone who drives a Jag.
