Pouring a skyscraper's concrete foundations is a highly choreographed, many-hour performance in three dimensions born out of the necessity to create a foundation that is one solid mass of concrete. Often called a '24-hour' pour whether it actually took seventeen hours or this, it's an event. Photos, like these pictures of the pour last weekend at starchitect Zaha Hadid's One Thousand Museum in Downtown Miami, show the drama unfold, but a video shot by drone shows the drama unfold better. One Thousand Museum had one of those poking around too, and shared the drone video flythrough with Curbed Miami first. Do check it out, after the jump.
