Whenever someone posts a time-lapse like that, I can't help but stare at it for a good couple minutes.

I also wish they would either make a transition slower or allow a way for the user to stop it at any given point.

Yep, I guess it's installed now. Unfortunately, the cranes block the view on EarthCam.

Not again! They wasted all morning putting the keystone piece in and now they've removed it! Unbelievable!

You really think that two huge arcs are going to meet at some point in the sky with perfect fit and fastener patterns to line up. Be real, no come along or bolt it going to pull the two sections together. They have multiple shims to install and areas to grind down.

Quit whining.

If you know anything about architecture then, yes, they will fit perfectly. That's what CAD renderings and working drawings are for. This project is already way behind schedule and with the earthcams, we can see why. They only install one or two segments a day! Look how fast Shanghai tower is being built if you want a comparison.

Good old USA union labor. Then again, in China they don't worry too much about safety and building codes. . .

Yeah... the Great Wall of China is full of deceased laborers, I heard.

very little to do with the labor, very lot to do with the bureaucracy of the PA, building in NYC, the design, and the difficulty.

Actually, this is not Calatrava's most complex design and I don't think it is any more difficult than Gehry's Louis Vuitton pavilion in Paris or the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. For me, blame lies with the project managers and PA bureaucracy, as thejacko5 said, and has nothing to do with the iron worker's skill. Calatrava and his team would have made sure the structure was buildable long before the blueprints left the office.
