It's rising around 1 floor a month or so, am I wrong?

I think it's just because the podium/base will be so massive and important to supporting the building, they must take extra care. Also, if I recall correctly, right now, the core is at the sky garden level, which probably also takes lots of care to construct properly. So yeah. After the podium is finished, it'll probably shoot up. But every couple months when they hit the sky garden, it'll slow down a bit again.

Just my thoughts and predictions

I once saw a video, where this was explained. the outer facade will be hanging from these reinforced steel sections. that's why they're not equally long around the megacolumns (as the design of the tower is fluent ...)

Yes, they are now constructing garden section floor. These floors are directly connected to the cladding, hence theirs irregural shapes.

So you are saying that cladding will be that much further out from the floor plate? Then the tower is going to look a lot larger than just what we see now.

Hi all.

Wow - lots of work going on.

Here is a drawing of the radial trusses they are installing now.

[IMG]http://i52.************/v7f41y.jpg[/IMG]

As we can see, they extend out to the outer curtainwall - hense they don't form a round shape. The outside edges of the supercolumns are where the round inner curtainwall will be. All of the levels except the first of each zone will be the size of the inner wall. The first level of each zone will extend to the outer wall - these will be the sky garden levels.

The radial trusses are on level 7 forming the floor of level 8 sky garden which is the first level of zone 2.
Here is a shot from January (from Mori I think) I've labelled.

The next radial truss level is 21 with level 22 as a sky garden and the first level of zone 3.


Ray.

Considering the magnitude of wind force on a curtainwall, it is amazing that these days they can construct a curtainwall that is only anchored every 20 floors or so. That curtain of glass must flex almost as much as a real curtain in high winds.

Hi Traynor.

The radial trusses are there to anchor the outer wall and to support the floor of the sky gardens between the inner and outer walls.

The outer wall is also anchored at every level in a number of places around the perimeter.

Wow that is a huge amount of empty space. That must be one of the apexes in the curtain wall. Also pretty optimistic looking occupants if this is to be a public space

Thanks so much Fury, for the explanation and the visual aids. That makes way more sense. All the cross-section renders I have seen so far did not show these trusses and I just knew they had to be there.

Hi all.

YW Traynor.

Guys, another building with the same arrangement of 2 walls with an open atrium space every so many levels is The Bow in Calgary, Canada.
It's only on one side and the structure is only a third as tall as this (but still will be one of the tallest in my country when completed), but it is a cool design feature.


Ray.

Maybe something like this is a little more realistic:

In architecture there is a HUGE difference between "public" space and what may truly be public space (like a road level park). When a good amount of architects use the word "public space" they simply mean a service area (ie, a kitchen or living room in a house) versus a "private space" that would be a bedroom or separated study. In an office building this could be compared to a lobby and an executive office room or conference room.
