They didn't get the right permits and had to scrap it. Plus it wasn't to code. Hell fire hazard.

I'm reminded of the great song "Laughter" by Canadian Bruce Cockburn:

Let's hear a laugh for the man of the world
Who thinks he can make things work
Tried to build the New Jerusalem
And ended up with New York

The size depends on the city. This is because it is based on the distance of a city in regards to the equator(latitude).

 

The square root of 2 relationship:

Looks like something to do with the Silver Ratio.  Which is the ratio the paper sizes in ISO 216 follow.  I guess he is practising origami.
