It's a bit of a rust overload at the moment, I hope they plan to tone it down!
When I've seen this done before, it's usually because it's acting more as an 'edge protection' system rather than a major working platform. Standard construction equipment, though. Either that, or there's some sort of access route underneath which prevents a permanent ground mounted scaffold structure.I didn't get it, I think it's a strange technique. Usually they use classic metal scaffolding.

What are the balconies on the facade for? There are no doors on this side. ?
As there are access doors on those levels I'd rather think they are for evacuation. My uneducated guess would be that (if the round windows can be opened in an emergency situation) the height of the lower levels would be sufficient to get away with "minor" injuries when dropping one down. Above a certain height that drop would be considered fatal and a proper escape route would be required.Yes, they're non-permanent. I would anticipate to allow the installation of the port-hole windows.
