The warmth of the plywood contrasting with the starkness of the white beams is very pleasing to the eye. Perhaps they should finish this wall off with agarwood.

Too bad that the wind tunnel tests show that the purlins were required. It ruins the entire look of the structure in my opinion.

The previous design with the mechanical moving roof required at least 3 purlins. Renderings of course overlooked these engineering details.

I hope we get to see some photos from "inside" the Oculus soon. From the floor level, it's got to start looking like an enclosure by now.

Might be a dumb question, but how will the structure become white?

Will they paint it or tile some kind of fabric on the structure to make it white?

Building of the temporary partition around the perimeter of the Oculus to protect the workers from extreme conditions continues.

Nope, the transition segment is being suspended in place by the crane at the top of the picture. The part you highlighted is a rafter. The rafters extend from the transition segments to form the finger like wings in the renders. hope that helps.
