This is going to sound like a stupid question, but can someone please explain the reason that a building looks so much taller when looking down than up. For example seeing 1wtc(or any building) up close it does not look so tall, but when you go up it seems increadibly tall. Any science behind that?

On topic: When is the base cladding starting?

Maybe because when you look up, you usually see only the building and the sky,
without references to judge distances. The brain tends to underestimate distances.

When you are on top of a building and look down,
you can assess distances, and their sense of preservation says he's getting dangerous.

This probably refers to our ancestors in the trees!
I think we were much taller than our ancestors !!!
Well, I'm no expert, just guess.

1WTC would be great to test some respect for the scientific method!

The composition with 1WTC is gorgeous. Like an iconic man made-peak. I almost think some of the other buildings when completed will kind of disturb this (although they'll add their own beauty to the area).

Breaking news: I don't have to model the TG-1900 and I'll model the unusual tower of this new Favco M760D and have new renders of the first few antenna mast sections by the new year. Wait a second. I see the beginning of the communications ring. Its next to the cooling tower on the left side of the tower, I might [big might] change the design of the comm ring in my model to match the actual construction.

It's hard to tell from the photo, has the roof slab been poured?

For that last ?,, I'm frustrated as well, but between the 200 to 300 people who have asked that question, 99.9% who have tried to answer with their best opinion,,have been wrong,, so for your answer, I'll say "the future," can't go wrong with that.. (But I've asked tht question several times, not 1 accurate answer) Just seems totally undetermined. I would guess by Spring though.
