From Wikipedia:

From the beginning, the Citigroup Center was an engineering challenge. When planning for the skyscraper began in the early 1970s, the northwest corner of the proposed building site was occupied by St. Peter's Lutheran Church. The church allowed Citicorp to demolish the old church and build the skyscraper under one condition: a new church would have to be built on the same corner, with no connection to the Citicorp building and no columns passing through it, because the church wanted to remain on the site of the new development, near one of the intersections. (Part of the church can be seen in V4) Architects wondered at the time if this demand was too much and would make the proposal unfeasible.
Structural engineer William LeMessurier set the 59-story tower on four massive 114-foot (35-m)-high columns, positioned at the center of each side, rather than at the corners. This design allowed the northwest corner of the building to cantilever 72 feet (22 m) over the new church. To accomplish these goals LeMessurier designed a system of stacked load-bearing braces, in the form of inverted chevrons. Each chevron would redirect the massive loads to their center, then downward into the ground through the uniquely positioned columns.

High Ty, Wow, did you put the clouds in, or are you just a lucky b*****d, or are you the type who gets "luckier" with more practice? Once again, great description. Thanks, Si

Very effective studies and altogether give us a "visit" to this modern centre and we have the history too. I agree the clouds were the icing on the cake.Well done.

All good, I particularly like the way V4 fills the frame. The basic composition is similar to V1 but it works better for me.
