The rendering is incredible indeed. But i was wondering about the picture where you see the main construction of the top of the building. Is this how it is gonna be? Because i think the central core misses.

I don't know what the core of the top of the tower will be like, so I only put the steel support beams in.

Mental Ray renderer tests. I'm setting up the lighting for an almost photoreal look like the WTC. There's also a few teething issues with the model I still have to fix. I can soon start working on the base an plaza.

Hi all.
Here is an interesting albeit superficial read on surveying the tower.

Yes, I like how even though the Middle East (Dubai) is soaring with skyscrapers, the people will always be accustomed to their old culture.
