Lower Manhattan = Boxes

Pudong = Crazy shapes.

I like them both the same, Lower manhattan for the crazy density (also looks good) and Pudong for the buildings.

I have a question...perhaps you may find it unintelligent.

Will this building have a sky lobby?

Lower Manhattan has the greatest collection, per capita, of pre-WWII skyscrapers in the world (Midtown has more in total but less per capita). No skyline has better shapes than Wall St.

I think of 1WTC as both trade towers combined , with the 8 sides it turns into being the 8 sides combined of the twins and the antennae of The North tower.

Manhattan is timeless. pudong is kitsch and built for the present, not the past or future.

Coming from someone who likes that tacky gold shenzhen tower? Right...


This is subliminal cladding nonetheless, i've really grown to like this as it's turning out to be a proper stunner.

Thank you, Chapelo. I was hoping it would have.

64 is a good number. It is between 44 and 78. ^^

Btw time for a WTC progress update:


Im glad they decided on the last design, its simple and in my opinion is the best tribute to the old twin towers. The other designs are rather hideous in my opinion. They were too open and hollow. The fourth design wasnt all that bad, but I still like the final one best. Its not perfect, but hey, if they didnt rebuild the Twin Towers, I will take it!

Does 1WTC have a steel exoskeleton like the towers did, it seems to have much more glass?

It has one, but it's not a tube-structure like the original towers, if that's what you're asking.
