^Banksy dissing Canada is one reason why I kind of want to kick him up the butt!

Banksy is an imbecile. There was a lot of pressure to have the new 1 WTC tower evoke the old ones to some extent. That limited the design options.

The new complex is far better architecturally than the old one, and this comes from someone who was in and out of the old WTC regularly.

Here is a look at how the two new towers changed the southern skyline. I had to find two images that were taken fairly close together, and crop them a bit:

That building is a disaster. Well no, disasters are interesting. One World Trade centre [sic] is a non-event. It's vanilla. It looks like something they would build in Canada."
Welcome to the forum. I'm glad you chose a negative comment as your very first post. If you'd like to see an in-depth discussion of Banksy's comments, people talked about it for several days starting on page 2559. I think you'll find the consensus here was that he should stick to what he knows best.

I personally still can't believe the NYT published that. I'd rather read 10 letters from Putin on US foreign policy.\

That's so funny. Everybody was speculating about that forever.

Banksy doesn't know anything "best" ... he just vandalizes property he doesn't own.

Gah I hate that stripe on the west side. Why is it there? Is it just cleaner windows or did they use another type of glass

There once was a structure where the stripe now is. It never reached the top of the building, but I suppose the windows must be installed from the base off, working upwards to the roof.

That's propbably why this stripe is just newer glass, contrasting with the older, dirtier glass next to it.

Yup I realize there was an elevator there but do you think it will ever match the other glass. It seems that they washed the glass the other day but there is still a discrepancy

The remaining gap is just about filled in now. Should be complete within the next few days.

I'm starting to realize the building would probably look just as weird without the massive pinnacle on top
