ニューヨーク「新ワールド・トレードセンター」完成間近! 1700フィートからの眺めが公開

2001年9月11日、アルカイダ実行犯のテロにより崩壊した米国ワールドトレードセンター。2006年からその跡地に新ワールド・トレードセンター「ワン・ワールド・トレードセンター」(フリーダム・タワー)の再建が始まっており、今年5月10日、ついにその頂点に電波塔の取り付け作業が完了。高さ1776フィート、世界で3番目に高い建物になった。なお、この高さは、アメリカが独立した年にちなんだものだ。

「ワン・ワールド・トレードセンター」公式Twitterでは、低層階からの眺めや、ブロードウェイからの眺め、ビルに取り付けられるライトといった部品等々が紹介され、順を追って見ると、着々とすすむ工事の様子がわかる。


また、NY&NJ港湾局は、工事をおこなうクレーンにアクションカメラを取り付け、上からの眺めを撮影した動画も公開中。高所恐怖症の人は要注意!

ニューヨーク「新ワールド・トレードセンター」完成間近! 1700フィートからの眺めが公開

Commuters step around a 3D art exhibit entitled "Escape the Rat Race" painted on the concourse of Victoria railway station in London to promote a pest control company, Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2012.

Known for his impressive 3D pavement art, Edgar Mueller created this gigantic chasm for the West India Quay Festival in London. Mueller derives some of his inspiration from the "Ice Age" films.

At first glance, street artist Julian Beever's sidewalk creations look like unfinished chalk drawings of oddly morphed animals or landscapes. But if you happen upon the one perfect angle, the image magically snaps into shape, showing you a giant charging snail or an aerial view of Times Square.

The process is called anamorphosis, which involves drawing a distorted image which gives the impression of a three-dimensional scene from a certain vantage point. According to NPR, the talented artist sets up a camera or a viewfinder in the specific spot he intends his viewers to stand and draws his killer whales and beachy snapshots from that perspective. So if a passerby views the work from that same perspective, the drawings jump to life in their three-dimensional glory. But if they stand from any other position, the chalk creation appears to be elongated fragments of an incomplete design.

Street artist Julian Beever also creates other mind-bending illustrations like this chalk reflection. Check out more of his illusions.

French street art duo TSF Crew create logic-defying works of art in the run-down areas of industrial France. Combining the cheeky thrills of a well-executed optical illusion with tst makes the perfect combination.

Commuter Katherine Ware relaxes on street artist Kurt Wenner's 3D work of art as he adds the finishing touches in Waterloo Station on October 17, 2007 in London, England. Wenner is famous for combining traditional street painting with classical training, illusion and performance to invent an art form of his own know as anamorphic, illusionistic or 3D painting.

Kurt Wenner, 3D chalk master, recently created a less perilous way to climb on the Grand Canyon with his massive optical illusion. Located at the South Rim of the park, the installation looks 3D from certain points of view thanks to 150 hours of hard work on Wenner's part. While it may not measure up to the real Grand Canyon experience, the photo ops may come out victorious.

British artists 3D Joe & Max created this stunning optical illusion in conjunction with Reebok CrossFit as part of the seventh annual Guinness World Records Day. The 1,160.4-square-meter painting, seen in London, broke the world record for the largest 3D street art.

Dutch artist Leon Keer is known for his impressive street art displays that play with perspective, but he also knows how to attract onlookers -- by choosing a recognizable theme. One of his most recent works seen in the Netherlands paid homage to Pac-Man, the 1980s arcade game.

Artist Qi Xinghua created this work of art entitled "Macao's One Impression" outside a local shopping center in Macao. Hidden within the 120 meter-long optical illusion are all of the city's historical and architectural landmarks.

A Flickr user photographed this impossible object on a building facade. The rectangle uses overlap and various perspective angles to create the illusion of the twisted shaped.
