I do like the narrower frame versus exposed I-beams or cylindrical pillars for a change, but it only really looks good as long as it retains that plaster-white color.
They're already quite dusty....a thin layer of dust coats the ones that hang over the platforms.

Didn't Calatrava design a similar structure to this?

He designed the Quadracci Pavilion of the Milwaukee Art Museum in Wisconsin. Is this what you were talking about?

To be honest, Calatrava only made a single design in his whole life. Then, whenever he needs he presses the "random" button on his pc and it changes the length and angle of the rafters and....voila!

About the hub, is there a schedule to complete the cover of the windows opening's mechanism? Maybe by the end of September?

Thanks

Being ignorant doesn't make you"honest"!..seems like you don't know much about Calatrava's work:nevertheless it's pretty easy to get informed nowadays!
Calatrava is definitely not a one trick pony!

I am afraid I am ignorant but I am afraid you are not good with irony . Trust me I know who Calatrava is and all his portfolio as I am spanish and here he is well known because of his beauty designs but also for the problem related to them: Madrid (Plaza de Castilla), Ciudad de les arts (Valencia), Bibao's bridge, Oviedo's congress Palace, Venice's Bridge (Italy)...

Keep calm and enjoy the irony .

Well, i think one of the most similar designs is The Agora of City of Arts and Science of Valencia (Calatrava's homeland):


http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...10378&page=203

Unfortunately, it is incomplete, the wings were never placed. Currently it looks like this:

From inside:

Like almost all the projects of Calatrava, that i really like, the Agora still have a lot of problem because of water entering from the skylight.. hope that in the Hub this problem will be fixed.

When will the installation of these begin? Are they ready to be installed?

When will they lower the temporary platforms INSIDE the Oculus, the ones placed right under the skylight which helped the installation of it?

I have a question, please:

I see what appears to be a temporary floor in the core of Tower 3.
They are not cement floors. Rather, they appear to be made of sheets of plywood.
Every week or so the individual sections of the plywood floor are raised up to the next level.

So, my question is this:
How do they raise the floor sections from below?

I assume they use hydraulic lifts of some sort.
But to do so - there has to be a solid floor beneath the temporary plywood sections above.

So, I'm curious - how is the cement for the inner-floors poured ?
And, how do they position the lifts to raise for the construction floor above?

If possible - please post photos that were taken from with in the core of the building that show the lifting process.
Or perhaps - post a link that explains the process.

Thanks

It is part of the form system. Looks something like this, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIPpBvYSx8Q
and also please take that to the 3wtc forum

That's how the external forms look, not the inner ones.

Thank You !!!

Thank you !!!

The scaffolding on the outside of the wall is easily visible on the cams.

However, I didn't think about it being on the inside too.
Well of course they would be - DOH !!!

This diagram helps a lot.

But how are the plywood floor sections supported ?
And how are they raised from below ?
