Hi everyone!

I entered the One World Trade Center photo contest by WTC progress on Facebook. I am on the 3rd place so far, so it means I have good chances to win it.
As you may know the prize is to win a trip to the top of the tower. That's why I need your help!
If I win I will make sure to take a lot of great photos and I will definitely share them with you here in this thread, the views, interiors etc ! It would be great opportunity to see what is going inside! And of course my big dream would come true....
I can bring two guests with me, so maybe I might bring someone from here

here is the link to vote on my photo: VOTE FOR FILIP

Please make sure that you don't only like the fan page, but also you have to vote next to my photo. We can vote once an hour. My photo is "Filip Stamford" and here is the photo:




Thanks in advance everyone!!

Unfortunately it's not really worth to follow this thread here lately
Attention seeker for an amateur model contest on the 3D section, no worries, it should end soon.

It' s a beautiful cladding.
It just does not match with the tower at all.
And about the "redesign"of the base itself it is a BIG loss...
The claddind with the braces was top notch!

The signature was annoying, but surely we aren't complaining about new photos being posted? I'd rather have that with some not-so-subtle grandstanding than the usual drivel this thread is infamous for.

I took a stroll from Midtown (finally walked the High Line) to Downtown yesterday and took a few pics along the way. Sorry, I only had my iPhone with me. Here you go.

I'm not allowed to criticize a skyscraper's architecture on a skyscraper forum?

Also, the photo I referenced is on the exact same page as my comment. Don't be uptight...

Perhaps you should do the same thing as per the forum rules. Or better yet just leave all together

Since the previous post was drowned in that crap, I'll ask it again- What's the deal with the beacon?

I'm just curious, what is the average floor height for the World Financial Center towers? You can see a difference with the white tower in the upper left corner, which I presume is residential

Not sure if this wqs asked before, so sorry if yes. Is the design of 1WTC somehow related to the cancelled NYSE tower?



They really look alike, just thinking of both constructed its orgasmic.
