I just wonder how many drivers will get blinded by sunlight reflection off one of the panels that must surely aim a beam straight down the road. The first photos already give an introduction of what I mean, worse at dusk.
It also poses issues for ATC at the control tower

I would be more worry on pilot get blinded by sunlight reflection. Think designer is likely to consider this before the project start.
Some years back, Singapore started with level 1 secure building for most important IT shop. Not sure if the same study been conducted for airport or any high security area like sea port etc.

Park in the lower decks if you wish to stay more than 90mins.

The top two carpark floors at Jewel will be reserved for short-term parking, with rates shooting up from 4 cents a minute to $5 per half-hour after the first 90 minutes.

and even for aircrafts landing on runway 20-L/C during the afternoon where the shiny broght reflections of the Jewel's roof. It's a matter of time that something will be done to the Jewel's roof when it opens shortly next year.

Well, at most they add sunshades on the roof, something like the "durian spikes" in Singapore Esplanade theatre.
