    I love these inside looks at the new club construction.

  2. So they were dropping into wet concrete? That stayed wet from dawn to dusk?

      Google concrete admixtures. Adding a retardant to concrete, like sugar, will slow the setting process. Add enough sugar and the concrete will never set, so it must be possible to make a mix that stays liquid for 12 or 24 hours.

        I've heard that many building sites keep a tank of molasses on site for this (presumably for accidental spills, rather than sudden desire to create art instead of buildings).

  3. Nate says:

    Why not drop first and add concrete when they're done?

    I don't care about new clubs or concrete admixtures or why not drop first and than pour concrete - this is electrifingly beautiful.
