I respect all ways of living, well all legal ways of living.
I think that window cleaning should be performed by automated systems or something alike.
This folks where on an 18th or 19th story, my camera was at an angle so the building is higher than what it looks like.
I edited this picture as a cartoon, because doing this job could be a scene from Gotham City but the truth is that it is the way many buildings’ windows are cleaned. Hope Batman and Robin aren’t too busy, just in case.
I wonder if the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifaa’s windows with 2,717 feet (828 m) height and 160 floors are cleaned the same way…
The construction of the Torre Latinoamericana started in 1948 and ended in 1956. It has 44 stories, and at that time it was the tallest building in Latin America with a height of 188 meters. It was also named the tallest building outside the U.S.
What makes this building important is its resistance to earthquakes. Have in mind that Mexico continually has telluric movement. It withstood the 1957 earthquake of 7.7 richter scale when the Angel of Independence fell from its column. It would withstand the 1985 earthquake of 8.1 , and the later earthquake of 7.9 on march 20th this year.
Nowadays the same mexican technology is used to build skyscrapers on high seismic risk areas.
If it shakes, we have the recipe….
