A visit to the top of One World Trade Center

We don’t normally range as far afield as New York for our posts, but it’s hard to resist meeting the ironworkers at One World Trade Center in New York, as the building nears its symbolic height of 1,776 feet. The architects from SOM describe the steel-frame building as “the strongest skyscraper in the world.”

A hat tip to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat for bringing this to our attention, and another to the CBS reporter and camera crew who filmed it.

You can see more of the beam-walkers who connect the pieces of a giant building’s frame in this post from five years ago.
