That's true. But the glass of 7 WTC isn't ugly.
It's better this way, just imagine every building in the complex would have the same glass like One WTC. That wouldn't look even better. It's okay now!
But I think, everyone has his own taste, and I don't want to argument about this

@pnapp:
Have you built it on your own?
It looks awesome

1WTC's glass looks far better than 7WTC's. I like when the glass is without lines.
I prefer that each of the WTC buildings has different glass. As a group they will look much better that way.

My visit to Ground Zero/The World Trade Center site today, October 2, 2011...
It's hard to explain what the feeling is at the site and around the World Financial Centre... it's such a busy area with so much life, and construction, yet, there's a hollowness and surrealness knowing that the Twin Towers once stood on this ground....

Here's another pic along with a rough (very unscientific) sketch of the remainder.... it might be way off, because the lines are hard to see,

And again,

Those shots really brought out the amazing polish of that glazing! Thanks!




- Oh and Dear readers, if I leave a "..." it's because I found a cool pic to post but it was old and out of sequence with the discussion, so I walked away.

Wow, so many awesome new photos, thanks folks. The aerial photo I like the most. It shows how gigantic 1WTC now is compared to the towers arround it
