Please resize your photos.
It's too large.
Even at full-screen I am forced to scrolling in all directions.
Thank you!

The main premise of this vertical technology campus is to create new technologies and spur innovation of new ideas . With so many universities in the region great things are sure to happen . Bringing together , lets say mathematicians and software engineers to create new algorithms for better and faster video compression . Even create four and five simulated spatial dimensional space the possibilities are endless . The worlds brightest students are in our own back yard , from Princeton to Penn , Drexel , Temple , U of Delaware . The list would be to long to include all the great schools of higher learning in the region . I'm convinced that Philadelphia will become not just a national center for innovation but an international innovation center .

Nah coz it's just a re-cladding. Summers or someone else will usually post periodic updates on one of the general threads.

Methinks they're getting the glass up against the west end of the north and south facades up so that they can put the spire in ASAP
...
A man can dream can't he?

That glass covers the shafts of the exterior glass elevators to the hotel, so it also may have something to do with that:

You can see that even better from this angle, with the glass covering the elevator shafts already reaching the lower floors of the hotel, and at least part of the steel framing of the shafts reaching the top:

Gotta hand it to Foster. This looks better than I ever imagined. And the more times I see the cut-outs (architectural term??) on the Comcast tower the more annoyed I get.

Well if your talking about that United Nations Capital rendering , the first thing I thought of is the old Sears/Willis tower in
Chicago , which is a first cousin rendering of the CITC . So I guess what goes around , comes around .
