Go Pro Captures Bjarke Ingels's Tetrahedron As It's Assembled

New, 2 comments

Bjarke Ingels's 57th Street tetrahedron, Via, is finally starting to resemble the soaring white Tostito its first renderings promised way back in 2009, and that's much due to its facade—now largely in place. Now, a new video recorded by a member of Ironworkers Local 580 gives an inside look at just how the many panels that canvas the building were set (h/t 6sqft). A Go Pro was mounted to a crane that hoists the panels no less than 460 feet into the air, providing a thrilling—and really nauseating—look at how one of the city's most interesting buildings was put together.
