Watch the Construction of One World Trade Center

Oh how resilient America is! In light of the horrific acts perpetrated on September 11, 2001, we remember, we grieve, we rebuild, and we persevere. 
 
One World Trade Center, completed in 2014, is a shiny example of a large scale curtainwall. Photographer Benjamin Rosamond compiled a 2 minute time lapse video, spanning 3 years, resulting in a beautiful representation of the construction of this striking façade.
