So just because Flickr does something about protecting photographer rights, you call them arrogant? If it's not your work, you need to give appropriate credits. That what Flickr requires so approprite person can get a credit and not you just posting a picture. It's not hard to understand.. oh wait I forgot why I was talking to...

Browsing and downloading images on Flickr is one of the most appallingly difficult things to do. And their file naming system is atrocious. Plus its a massive resource hog.

That cladding is amazing. It's literally a mirror.

I just love how the two textures of glass and concrete interact.

This will look very abstract from some vantage points, much like 4WTC where the tower itself appears almost invisible, except with this you'll see random floating concrete beams

That facade is just amazing!

Any engineers care to discuss the structural integrity of the balconies being added the way they were (after the main floor pours) now that some of them are finished?

The balconies remind me of Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater house

This building is without a doubt the skyscraper version of Falling Water.

I'd be very curious to hear a professional opinion myself. I've seen solutions for cantilevered balconies being poured after the fact, but it was done with thermal gates with the appropriate rebar connections integrated into the gate that is forming the edge of the slab when the floor is poured first. This one doesn't seem to have anything like that, just the pure concrete edge, with a few rebars sticking out...i really wonder how they do it....and if I ever go up to that tower, will I dare to jump up and down on the balcony...

Imagine if some of the balconies actually had waterfalls

While we're at it, why not just build a glass skyscraper on top of the Fallingwater house and then build an exact replica of Fallingwater on top of that, with the actual water. We'd call it "Literal Carnegie57", and it'd be the tallest building in the forest and possibly in Pennsylvania.

Yea, the glass has really caught me off guard. It almost looks like mercury.
