Back to toppic, how is the glass attached?? It's outside the frame, so I suppose it's glued.
You mean the glass on the frame or cladding piece to the building?

Why does this tower have so few vertical columns when the originals had so many?

there is an unbelievable amount of vertical columns inside of the tower, the netting blocks a lot of your vision

Because it has seriously strong concrete/steel core which is like s spine of this tower...Originals had only steel core so there were those vertical columns to help this steel core..

The very first skyscrapers appeared around 125 years ago. I wonder what the architects and engineers of those times would have thought of the glass curtain walls and other engineering marvels and technology of today?
