This is a building revolution! The future of building and skyscraper construction is here! Today,tall buildings are being built using technologies in the USA-Upbrella Construction,in Austria-Hickory Building Systems,in the UK-Jump Lift,in China their technologies .. They all build by lifting materials to the floor under construction and only marginally improve the performance of traditional technology. ConstructionWithoutCrane-Builds by raising the building under construction to a floor height ..always builds the "first" floor.And then, having a "permanent work site",we robotize the main construction work and build the floors of the building like cars on an assembly line. ConstructionWithoutCrane builds buildings twice or more,faster (calculation on the site),builds any building .."on the ground" without a crane And yet the main thing for business is profit ..a project without proper commercial potential,for business is like a wedding night without a bride! Let's say that I'm right,we have mastered the technology,and we are building buildings (skyscrapers) twice as fast. Then we will winthe construction of all skyscrapers in the world,more than 120 of them are built a year. The capital turnover of our company will be over $ 120 bn very soon! The turnover will increase by an order of magnitude if the new technology is “sold” all over the world. Colossal business! I propose to master a new technology,having mastered all the methods of lifting a building under construction. igidali.ru youtu.be/MfIez2SBr6c RF patent for invention No. 2716319 International patent application PCT No. RU2019000773 Igidali Ashurbegov Russia,Rostov-on-Don.
Original rare documents on the way to be donated to the 911 Museum shortly!! This is a proposal for instillation of the North Tower of the Original World Trade Center TV Antenna!!
Do you still have on exhibit large models of the Twin Towers which were destroyed in 2001? I used to visit often until I got a stroke in 2017. I have always been fascinated by skyscrapers although I am afraid of heights. I never made it to the new One Trade Center but I often visited the roof of World Trade 2. It was awesome.
Hi there, does anyone perhaps recognise the building shown on the cover of Henry Millers book "The Air-Conditioned Nightmare" (1945). I can see from the sleeve that the photo is by Hubert Creekmore., but no idea where. It seems to be very similar to the Metropolitan Life North Building, in NYC, but that's not it! Any help appreciated!!
