That would be nice, they are really flying on this side!

Hopefully we start to see pieces go up on the other side, not sure what the hold up is as it looks like 3pcs per side are ready to go.

Just read an article about the new Florida Polytechnic University, looks like Calatrava is running out of ideas!!



Oddly enough, Skanska is also involved in the project.

Even the white structure around the main building looks similar to "l'umbracle" also in Valencia.

Is the glass going to be as thick as those slots in the portals? Because it'd be quite massive if it is.

no, it will be inches, not feet. How many inches is need to know, and I don't care much to know. I think between 1 and 3 inches though or something of the sort.

After seeing these pieces in real life, I am so excited to see the progress and finished product. This is going to make a big impression on the site.

They must be doing maintenance on the camera, or on something near it. At the moment the direct link shows a fence and other roof-top stuff:
