When I see a fat watermark from an account that has never posted in this thread before, I feel like I'm being advertised to. Maybe it's because I grew up in the internet age but I have no patience for that.

Goldendusk is welcome to post here, but I'm welcome to defend a thread I love from self promo.
I suppose I can see what you're saying, especially with that added context. I just remember when I was first posting some crappy iPhone pictures here and was nervous people were going to make fun of my shots of WPE lol

Anyway... back on track with some pictures:

Yea, me neither. But wouldn't a rim of light (that could change colors, ala Hanncock, etal) be fantastic?

At first glance I thought it might be part of the building where glazing could go over but light source could go behind. More likely just support for the glazers doing that final stretch of concrete.

If they did it, I'd want them to do it atop each of the "tower" sections. I think that would look nicer that way

Who's our best photoshopper that we can get to do this?

No building will ever compare to Lake Point Tower on the Lake with all those sensuous curves to it.

So glad you guys like it.

Yeah as I was making it I realized how badly I want it to become reality. Oh well, better for the environment

Nice update!

From where we were a few months ago it's incredible how much ground that glass crew made up. Phenomenal job.

Those are warblers. There's a zillion subspecies of them, they all migrate South around this time of year after mating in Northern States and Canada.
