Ok that’s super nice cladding, the detail is unbelievable. I thought the Shard at London Bridge had nice glazing .

This one is pretty old, it was taken almost 2 weeks ago... But, in my opinion, it deserves to be posted.

Hi everybody!

This is my first diagram of the One World Trade Center Construction Progress, I know I need to add some more information. For now I'm not going to post it here because the size of the image is huge and it can be disturbing for some people. Anyways, I'll leave the link to the image here.

Please, let me know your opinions so that I can improve the work.

The spire on this building is huge! I didn't realise the roof height only goes up to 417m!

Wonderful cladding. Like most buildings the more that goes on the better it will look.

Your safety cocoon is too small. It should cover four floors instead of two. Also you should add the current height. Beside that I enjoyed your diagram a lot. Nice work!

The spire is only ~15 m/50 feet taller than the antenna on the original Tower 1, so the difference is almost negligible.

15 meters in terms of a 417 meter building is negligible, 15 meters of carpeting in your house is not negligible.
