i didn't agree with the advertisement idea, but i realized what you were referencing to. so i wanted to like the statement for its cleverness, but not for the statement itself, now that you cleared it up for the others i can at least like that one, because now it is clear

Using the sides of buildings as billboards seems like the next logical step however distasteful.

On the third pic they're installing something that looks like a rail. could be for the cladding!

It could also be something else. I wouldn't speculate until the first trucks with glass arrive at the site.

I thought first that it might be for cables or so, but the rail above the one they are working on could well be for the facade. We'll see...

Continued.

Small re-bars are also being used in the super columns to increase the surface area of bonding between concrete and steel.



As ZZ-II pointed out they are now installing rails on super columns for cladding (?)
