I think they are kind of getting the hang of it. Just like with the portals and arch segments.

Looks like there's a rafter going up on both sides! The third one on the east side is being prepared again and there's one hanging in the air for the west side.

Are they already welding the rafters while the rest is still being mounted, or are they waiting until all of them are positioned in their spots?

It's great to see the transportation hub getting its wings. We have a Calatrava building in Valencia, Spain that was supposed to look similar (except in blue) but when the main body of the building was finished a few years ago they just stashed the wings behind another nearby Calatrava building where, after many months, they started rusting. Now they wouldn't fit anyway, Calatrava and the city each blame the other, and no one is willing to fork over the money to build and put up a new pair.

I'm really glad to see that the New York project is working out better, and look forward to seeing it in person when it's done.

All rafters will be placed and once all are placed, welding will commence then the temporary boxes can be removed holding them on.
