This building was beautiful with the colors of the flag of the United States. I imagine this building, after being completed..... With the podium blue (like the WTC 7), and the spiral with red light. Also would look cool like a light as we saw in the series Fringe (last episode of season three), along with what I told above.
Looks like the Dutch flag But it sure looks cool, just like those colored lights during Christmas!

I hope the podium won't appear much different, I liked the old one. Is it an issue with the manufacturer itself or is it just physically impossible? If it's an issue with the manufacturer, can't they just conract another manufacturer?

No offence, but that looks more like the Netherlands to me. Very beautiful anyway!

That looks really cool. It actually looks like the same camera position as Earthcam has. Where did you shoot it from?

This is a nice gallery by the way, the "new" photos are a bit old (november 2010), but you can still see the huge amount of progress:

Is Obama planning to make any speeches or anything at the site today? And if so, what time? I'd be interested in watching
