ALMA Residencia construction time-lapse

The ALMA Residencia at the ALMA Operations Support Facility was handed over to the Joint ALMA Observatory in April 2017. The celebration event was attended by the ALMA Board and the directors of the three executives — ESO, NAOJ and NRAO. The ALMA Residencia is the last major construction item to be delivered to the ALMA project by ESO.

This time-lapse sequence shows the construction of the building in greatly speeded-up form.
