Hey kissingengland it looks nice and all but I believe 1WTC has more of a punch to it.

Watched this thread from the start, great to see it nearing completion.

Love the squared off parapet, giving subtle hints of what once stood next to it.

Fantastic photos, keep them coming!

Yeah man, I live in North Korea Unlike most people here, I don't hide my age or location. Also, I don't come here to "argue" with other members. That statement is just "ridiculous" on your part and to me questions your intentions of even being here. There shouldn't be any "arguments" here what so ever and there probably would never be any if it weren't for people stopping by to voice their "negative opinions"

yeah, in all honesty, that's the way it should be here. If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all. I believe most of our mothers taught us that at a young age. Like I said, you don't see me over at the Ford forums screaming how I dislike their product. That would just be "ridiculous" and asinine on my part. Also, I agree that you should stop reading here because it sounds like you enjoy reading arguments and back and forth bickering. To my knowledge, that's not what SSC is about.

I'm not to sure that friendly, non-argumentative threads are going to damage the site very much I actually think that the majority of the people that are here and contribute on a regular basis, can't stand when a thread is hijacked with pages of arguments and hate comments. After all, and once again, if those people don't like 1WTC or the way "Child's design" turned out, then why even click on this thread in the first place It's all about ones intentions.

Geesh. Blah blah blah I'm right you're wrong blah blah blah...change your mind. no you change yours. Waste of everyone's time. Big time. I believe people have the right to say what they want as long as it doesn't cross the lines of discrimination. Let it rest or the carp just continues and no one wins. Geesh.

In my opinion, the building turned out to be nicer than the renderings.

Does anyone have any pictures from inside the LOBBY of 1WTC? Seriously, no one EVER posts pics from inside the lobby.

Because if we are honest then 1WTC is dismaying isn't it? We all wanted something amazing and worldclass and we haven't got that, we've got a McScraper, its generic and bland, even if it is tall. But it isn't even that tall compared to the wow-towers in Asia.

We should be able to accept criticism, and I wonder what has happened to us uf we cannot.
Generic? Bland? It may not "dazzle" everyone, but the number of buildings like this are far and few. I would consider bland something along the lines of the international architecture that dominated the 1970's. The only reason the original WTC wasn't "bland" was because their sheer dominance and height was astronomical.

From that angle, the building seems to rise forever.

That's one of the things I figured would be really cool about this building when it began to reach completion. Anybody that stands at the base at the correct angle now will see an impressive optical illusion!

It is not a bad building but I find all other WTCs better than this one. And they are not the most beautiful buildings in New York, let alone the World.
