STR said they're going with the glass fins..Something like this:

And supposedly the fins will go in different directions..Note that this is not a glass for the base, it's only a example of something similar..We're still waiting for official renders..They're testing the glass right now..
Only rumors for now..

I was too lazy for QOUTE

When I saw the last picture of this collection, I thought at the first moment:
what the f***. The building isn't ready, but the spire is at the top. Haha
Amazing pics, by the way
Question, be honest: Did somebody think the same?

These pics show clearly how much different the structural design of 1WTC is compared to the Twins

Can't wait for the base cladding. Can we expect to see 1 WTC at 1,100 feet by November?

A controversial tower rises at ground zero
Quote:
At the ground, each side of the building will have a cable-net-supported glazed portal, 60 feet tall, although the lobby will be otherwise surrounded in concrete. The architects had planned to camouflage the podium with tempered and laminated prismatic glass panels that would reflect, refract, and transmit light, in order to “establish a relationship with the water cascading in the memorial pools,” says Childs. However, after discovering that tempering caused the panels to bow, interfering with the laminating process, the project team devised another solution. The alternate, which sources describe as glass fins projecting from the facade at various angles, is now in the bidding phase but has yet to be finalized.

I don't know what Oasis is trying to prove with all those pics that don't have any relation with 1WTC..
