Impossibly bright building

When a building is totally clad in gold reflecting glass, and the light reflects just right, the effect can be dazzling... almost blinding.

At first the reflection does not seem to make sense because our viewpoint seems to be 45 degrees, not 90 degrees... but take a closer look and you will see that alternating panels are tipped, creating this unexpected result.

Of course when the light is not at a direct angle the effect is quite different. The building below is the same structure taken from a very different angle.
