in a few hundred years when the new seven wonders of the world are chosen again, this will probably make it.

Maybe they were temporary supports? The real ones will be different? Or there was a flaw or unforeseeable design problem.

Question: is all the space behind the clocks mechanical? Seems like a HUGE area with a lot of wasted space.

Nope, it'll be an international-standard clock center (I HAVE NO IDEA what that means, saw it in an official vid) open to visitors
