Making of Panorama of One World Trade Center

The challenges facing the TIME crew in taking a unique 360° panorama of the new One World Trade Center is explored in this video. The picture is taken at 1,776 feet and the crew had never climbed the tower before, so designed a jib contraption in Autocad using blueprints of the tower, taking into consideration strong winds, vibration, etc.

An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at how TIME scaled the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere and snapped an historic photographic panorama.
