So lemme tell you the REAL boggling part of this story:
Okay, designing the sunward part of your building as a parabolic reflector is just simple incompetence. But that's not the AMAZING part of the story. No, the AMAZING part is that the architect, Rafael Viñoly, previously designed the Vdara in Las Vegas. Which did the EXACT SAME THING. It is ALSO a parabolic reflector which aims a concentrated sunbeam at the pool deck, causing a dangerously hot "Death Ray" which moves across the pool area as the sun moves.
Designing ONE Death Ray building is incompetence. But designing TWO is just boggling.
