It is built very different from Argentina, here the structure of buildings besides you got a core of reinforced concrete, have the external and internal columns made of reinforced concrete.
Very nice design of the tower

I also have to say that in my opinion these new buildings simply rock! Rather minimalistic and beautiful. The height is perfect. Not to low. Not to high.

I think many new scyscrapers look like shit simply because they want to show that they can make a different skyscraper. Just look at Chicago Spire which looks like a superdildo instead of a skyscraper.
It is what it is

If you look very closely at the pics that spectre000 posted near the top of the last page you well see yellow concrete forms on the 5th floor. So, they are done with re bar and getting ready to pour the core from the 5th to the 6th floor. (Remember, we go from the 6th to the 20th floor, there are no floors 7 through 19)

They are still working on secondary core structure on the first floor as well as the protection walls.

Greetings from Argentina!
They are NOT thin.

And because they are steel and not concrete they are extreamly strong in compression and tension. (think wind loads)

Be sure turn the sound off.

Or should I leave the sound on and count the "facts" they get wrong. <flips coin>

You must have Rachel Maddow confused with Glenn Beck. Who was a drug addict who "found Jesus"

My comment had nothing to do with political slant right or left, I care nothing for that. My comment has to do with the fact that they never get it right and I have all the answers right here in this stack of prints.

Have you any idea how frustrating it is to listen to talking heads with nary a clue yapping on about something they have no idea about as I sit here with 25 years of construction experience and a full set of prints !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????????

It's like listening to a five year old talking about quantum physics.



PS: Glen Beck is a brain damaged hypocrite.
PPS: I'm going to TIVO the show because I want to see what can be seen.

Is the earthcam webcam down or is it just me? For me it's been stuck on the same image since yesterday evening and doesn't have the American flag in the north pool.

I apologize.

Anyways, from the commercial I seen it looks like she will be interviewing someone who works at the sit. Maybe a supervisor.

In the interview the lady called the spire a antenna ow. if I was her boss I'd fire her because antenna count. That wouldn't be 1776 feet and that's the whole point. Its a spire that lady of all people should know that.
