Is steel or concrete faster? Or does it depend on temperature, humidity etc.?

In New York, concrete buildings can be constructed up to twice as fast.

How do you make photos look like the last one? It looks a bit like color film from decades past.

Play around with the saturation and contrast in Lightroom.

In theory, steel is quite faster; while concrete needs time to reach its final strength, steel can go as fast as you assemble it. Obviously you have to take an account other requirements, as fireproofing, or making, transporting and placing the pieces on site.
But if we are only talking about building structures, what in concrete would take weeks, could take just hours made of steel.

Steel is much faster than concrete, look at the Empire State Building, it was built just over a year.

They didn't bother with safety netting or as many safety rules, everyone just walked on the beams, there was a glut of cheap workers, they were racing Chrysler, back then it was perfectly okay if say 5 workers died, did they even have fireproofing? Empire had some advantages modern steel buildings don't.

Oh yeah. I thought it was the vision for the site on which BIG’s Spiral is going up (the “Hudson Spire” placeholder that got floated around).
