I agree. It is absolutely huge. All pics above show it.

4WTC is just insane at some angles, literally melts into the sky.

Base looks very solid. Looks like an improvement over old WTC.

I like the minimalism and use of lines and wide surfaces, and also the ambiance the thin vertical openings in the wall create, but I'm a bit disappointed that they made the spaces so narrow. But they did what they could given the safety requirements.


Comparison to the beautiful old lobby...

I still think that the twin towers were better except in emergency measures. More floors and wider, outdoor observation deck and there were 2 towers. 1 wtc is a good tower also, but it needs it's wtc 2 partner, otherwise there's still a big hole in the skyline

Agree, except for the fact that the design of old wtc was, in my opinion, not an attractive building.

I like the old lobby better as well. Much more warm and personable. The new one looks a bit cramped.
