National Library construction site

We return to Riga as we left it - again to construction field. On Monday I had a chance to visit currently largest active construction site in Riga - Latvia's National Library building. Around 400 workers are working there. The thing that I noticed and what disappointed me quite strongly - the cladding they're using differs very much from what's visible in renders. It supposed to be absolutely white (symbolizing mountain of ice). Now it seems we will get "mountain of plastic" instead. Very bad... At least I hope it has reduced the construction costs very considerably. Compare to render:

Most active works are going on on top now:
