Watch Jenga Tower 56 Leonard Take Shape in 60 Seconds

New, 3 comments

As far as construction time lapse videos go, this is one of the better ones. It's to the point, doesn't play around with any fancy angles, is of an actually interesting building (Herzog & de Meuron's 56 Leonard, of Jenga-facade fame), and is mercifully un-scored. There isn't much to say about it other than that, but if you have almost exactly one minute to watch one of the most highly anticipated condo buildings in New York City rise to 60 stories and begin to grow the asymmetrical protrusions that have spawned the Jenga comparisons, then that is something that you can do.
