The only hope I have left is that the cladding will look a little better when the sun shines

Update 27/01/2007.

Hi dear guys...

I finally had a bit of time to spend around la Defense and went to shoot some of the towers. It was unfortunatly too dark to spend too much time... I wanted to go around a bit more, but, that was already too late. Anyway...

Here are my pics... dated 27/01/01 the cranes were being lifted a bit, and tested...

T1 from far away.








7 tons almost on the far end of the boom of the crane ! It was seriously leaning !!!








Granite Tower :







How to make a crane higher ?


Details of the formwork + concrete structure.



Cheers.

Krys

Thank you !!

T1 is approx. 136m for the core and 124m for the floors.
For Granite, I don't know.

The facade on Tour Granite looks good. Nice reflections.

I don't mind T1's cladding either.
