||The Bahá'í World Centre released an update on the construction of the Shrine of 'Abdu'l-Baha:
The eight pillars of the central edifice have been completed and scaffolding was being set up in the space between the pillars and the completed folding walls for work on the trellis that will span the central plaza.
The folding walls on the west side of the central plaza were also complete and were being joined with one of the portal walls of the south plaza.
Preparations were beginning for the work of building an intricate trellis across the central plaza.
A semi-circle of folding walls enclosed one side of the central plaza at this time. The second set of folding walls was being built, mirroring the first on the opposite side of the plaza. The completed set of folding walls were being joined with one of the portal walls of the south plaza.
The foundations have been constructed for the path encircling the Shrine. The space between the path and the walls will eventually be filled with a sloping garden berm.
Progress has been made on garden planters in the north plaza area. The encircling path will intersect the garden planters. [BWNS1517]
