Does anyone know the company supplying the formwork and when the climbing system will be installed?

What is this? It seems like construction site between Wtc-1 and Wtc-2. Is it going to be something between?

A performing arts center that some people call 6WTC. There's no official design released yet and will be the last thing built on the site.

You know, what ever people said about it, pile of fish bones, etc.., somehow for some reason i think this Calatrava station will be the best thing built in New York. It might turn to be New York City's symbol no.1 ever... Why do i think that? Well, i really don't know. It is just now, when i see it almost finished, i think this thing is something that fits best in NYC in all times.... What ever people said about it, i think it is an architectural jewel....

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, especially about architectural design. My opinion is exactly the opposite of yours in regards to this structure however. It looks about like every other structure Calatrava has designed recently. It's also so much more expensive than it needed to be to serve the purpose it's going to serve. It's a great example of how much government officials like to spend taxpayers money!!

No, it's 6 WTC (PAC).

Right now it's the mechanical for the temporary PATH entrance, which is being demolished December.

Okay, back on topic. It appears that all of the forms have been installed to begin work on the core. When will they install the huge piece of machinery that will have the raising formwork?

Can someone explain me what is actual purpose of central core? Why is it so important? I mean, can skyscraper like 3wtc be constructed without it?

Well, sometimes i really know to be boring, but believe me it is not my intention. As english is not my native language and as i am still new on forum, i just have a lot of questions. What is the formwork?

A central core is the most efficient and strongest place to position one in a tower which goes straight up.
They provide the staircases, lifts and a bit of mechanical equipment, and rooms such as toilets which don't require windows.
It also adds incredible strength to a building, the perimeter columns take the outer weight, whilst the core takes much of the inner weight as well as connecting the floorplates

Some towers don't have cores, but are very rare from my understanding, and for a tower of this size (a large square footage) it's safer to have a core

Also seeing as this is pretty much a steel structure, a core will help to dampen the swaying

So basically a central core has practical uses as well as structural

Are this beams connected with each other? This beams form some kind of steel sceleton, right?

It looks like they are just embedded in the concrete on each side to bridge the openings in the core.
