The "Walkie Talkie" building, currently (Sep 2013) under construction in London, England, has had its fair share of publicity lately. And not all good! It's been nick-named Walkie Scorchie and Wok-ie Talkie.

The Frank Gehry-designed concert hall in LA had similar problems. No egg-frying but enough of a problem to raise temperatures in nearby condos by 15 degrees F and forcing people to crank up their AC.

The Museum Tower is a 42-storey condo tower currently (Sep 2013) under construction in Dallas, Texas. It neighbours the Nasher Sculpture Center which houses a gallery that depends on specially filtered sunlight, a feature that was painstakingly designed into the building in 1993. Fast forward to 2013.
