FANTASTIC renderings, though they hardly look safe!
Yeah! They kinda look like they can collapse anytime. But looks can be deceptive. For a strong building that will stand for a long time, the design of the building should be proper with a strong foundation. If the steel frame of the building is built in the correct manner(ie the steel columns and I beams are properly arranged and welded), the foundation of the building is strong and the materials used in the construction of the building are of high quality then I believe the building won't suffer any major problem for a sufficiently long period of time.

Could some reupload some of the WTC7 construction pictures? Most of them arent available due to outdated links/deleted etc.

^^ Nice shot. Really shows the core of the south tower well.

Site demolition and excavation, circa 1968. Only the 5 tallest of Radio Row still stand, along with a few tenements. The Singer and City Investing Buildings can be seen being slowly smashed to the ground in the back.


A few from Trung Trung on flickr.com showing demolition of buildings in the neighborhood and construction of the towers;
