You upload the photo to a photo host like flickr, imageshack etc. You copy your link and you put [/img] behind the link and [img] in front of it.

I see on the KPI cam from 7WTC that they're filling in the gap in the cladding on the north side of the building. I also noticed that they're not fireproofing those beams before putting in those glass panels. Aren't they taking a big risk by not doing that? In case of a fire breaking out along that side of the building some of those beams might partially bend because of the heat, or am I wrong?

Good to see that the cladding is almost done. Looks very shiny.

I think only the outer beam hasn't fireproofing, since the elevator was there. And I don't think such small part without fireproofing is actually in danger to break/bend.

It's nearly finished! Can't wait until they top out the last layers of glass...

I posted a news article a few weeks ago that said the south side was supposed to get glassed in by the end of the month and the street businesses would finally be able to remove their protective scaffolding. I think they got it wrong. The north side will likely be done by the end of the month. I noticed the south side still has their elevators.

I also checked this a few days ago they haven't even started taking down the elevators, so they were a little bit optimistic with their outlook. I also think this included the glass at the top, which hasn't progressed lately. By the way, the earthcam (http://archives.earthcam.com/archive...zmpr288_2.jpg) directed on tower 4 is now updating regularly, not only once a day as it used to. So if they clad the top, at least we can follow it closely

Maybe they are waiting until they have caught up on all sides? Or they could still need it open to bring stuff to the top. Hopefully they finish soon I'm anxious to see this done!

If I've learned anything from this website, it's that classicists like Hed Kandi are extremely aggressive towards modern architecture, and dogmatically see it as ugly.

They do not understand the beauty of modern design.

Imagine if you had an apartment adjacent to that, would be very cool.

I love the architecture for the new complex. But everyone has a right to their own opinion, no matter how negative that opinion is.

What makes it disappointing? What do you not like about it?

I personally love this building! Imagine what it would look like with the reflections of the rest of the WTC complex on it's giant mirror fašade!
