Catching the delicate light of a mid-September day, the 60-metre-high steel structure of the Assembly Hall takes centre stage in a video clip recently released by Architect-Engineer Engage.

Filmed by a drone camera flying just a few metres above the building, the clip reveals the complex geometry of the structural beams; catches workers in their telescopic boom work platform tightening some of the structures 85,000 bolts; and, as added benefit, captures a lot of the action taking place elsewhere on the 42-hectare ITER construction platform.
