Maybe it is already posted here but they attached the crane to the building. In answer to a discussion a few pages back.



See the beam that run toward the building in the one red square. I am also looking forward to the action of putting the pieces for the crane extension in. This camera has an awesome viewpoint on that!

By the end of the afternoon we possibly won't see the cabin of the crane anymore.

There has been a lot of activity on the 57th side take a look, rebar cages in, forms have been raised and the crane has been lifting things all day.

Not much else can be done on the 56th side until the crane is raised which likely will be later today.

Actually not so much from that angle because 432 will be significantly further away from the location where that picture was taken than One57. Now, if they take the picture from Queens ...

56th street crane appears to be jumping now.

North and west column forms have already jumped as well too. Progress is accelerating.

If you truly feel this way then I encourage you to become a construction or civil engineer. Architecture is about crafting space for people. It's about the experiences felt within and when viewing those spaces and structures, and thus it requires a deep understanding of peoples needs, wants, behavior, etc. You'll learn more math but computers and engineers handle the heavy lifting of that aspect of design. But first the space and form needs to be conceived, and that requires the human element. All the great structures in history were designed this way, based on the built environment to be created and not just the strict mathematics behind what was possible.

Engineering is the science. Architecture is the craft and artistry.
I'm an artist as well. The main reason I love skyscrapers is that they're the perfect combination of art and math, as well as existing in an urban environment. I'm considering civil engineering as well. One great thing about this forum is that I can learn about the different dimensions desired for office and residential buildings in different environments. I must say, thanks for the input, though. It means a lot.

That picture above might be accurate: 432 Park Avenue might be finished before the cladding on One57 is ever completed!

You're welcome, and best of luck in which ever profession you embrace. Both are challenging but rewarding, and both would benefit from someone spirited and passionate about their work.

Cheers.
