I drew pyramids on top of squares and weird windows...whacky shapes here and there... Kinda like how 90s/00s postmodern buildings look...

LOL, I found some drawings the other night from like 2002 to 2005 of "cities" I drew as a kid. I'll post them in my drawing thread once I get home.

They are raising the outer forms and seems to be pouring the core, so tomorrow it should be raised to.

With that they are keeping a 4-day cycle in average, with tomorrow's core jump, the distance betwen jumps would be: 4 days - 3 days - 5days (always taking in account only working days)

When I thought of skyscrapers when I was little, I just drew something a lot like 432 Park, except shorter, more proportional, and sometimes I made the exterior black or brown, not including the windows.

Cranes still in action and it's almost 5:00. Forms have been lifted since last time I checked.

Bad weather coming for Labor Day? So sad.

But the tower looks really nice. Anyone have pictures, because I haven't seen any of them on this page.

This uses rebar with concrete, there's no steel skeleton.

Some of the smaller towers are at least as fast.

It would be more expensive. Buildings in New York are built for profit not just for show.

And we also keep in mind the quality of lives for the construction workers.

Don't fool yourself. Some of NYC was built for show and some of the most iconic skyscrapers were unprofitable for many years after being built. Also, buildings in nearly every city are built for the same reasons as in NYC. Most are profitable immediately but some take years to find tenants.

The city is impressive enough that we don't need to denigrate other cities and nations in an attempt to make it seem better. That just makes us look bad.

Interestingly, both 432 and 1LP share a simplistic square floor plate all the way to the top of the building. Both also use less common facade material which is structural rather than a thin asthetic cladding. Where they differ is that 432 is slender, almost delicate. 1LP is bulky, hulking and imposing despite not being as tall.

Well, here's what those hollow beams look like.


The point was that 432 and 1LP both are a nice change from glass clad buildings. Instead, they allow structure to show through and break up the monotony of a perfectly flat facade. That is my favorite thing about the New York skyline, it isn't all glass. This building provides excellent variety in the cityscape.
