Whoa!!!
This sculptural Building will be an Icon in the (new) New Yorker Skyline.
The New Yorker could be very proude for building such a magnificent and difficult to realize architecture.
Congratulation NY and take care of your CALATRAVA!

One more busy morning, starting really early today... (snapshot from 07:16)



Seems like they are trying to beat the one year milestone for completion of the overstructure (excluding the rafters)...
It was April the 17th 2013 when the first SE abutment was placed:

Wow I'm starting to really get excited about this project as it's taking shape. It's going to look freaking awesome.

I'm not sure about howling but I'm sure once it's completed the wind moving around it will create some interesting sounds.

It's my favorite building of the new WTC complex, at least until WTC2 gets built.

I looked at a better quality picture to check and those element you pointed should be just shims. The design included 1" shims in 6 different locations along the arches, to compensate the alignment. The key arch sectors, still missing on site if i am not mistaken, are the same width of a normal sector, just with not transition flag.

End of the work day and more pieces on site. Looks like we're only missing the final pair! Good to see the second rafter up for good this time.

You guys seriously need to start posting smaller pictures like I do. Use Imgur or something.

Again, people can do what I do where you can click on a smaller thumbnail to see the full size image.

That's why I cropped the last one. Some of us don't want to have to go to another site when we can see the image just fine here!
