David Childs did a perfect job on Freedom tower design. Those renderings are breathtaking.

So with all this hostility flying around what is it exactly that people don't like about this tower?

I'm not fond of the height; I wish it was taller with a roofline of at least 1500 feet and I do wish there was two of them. And I wish one of them had a spire of 403 feet to represent the fire Fighters and cops killed in the attacks.

But generally speaking I like the design and the cladding chosen. An I absolutely adore tower 2.

i think the design of it is okay. i agree about the roofline. i think the spire is too tall. i would have liked to see the geometry of the shaft continue into the crown and terminate more delicately. it is what it is though.

thanks to all for the pics!

question regarding the core

In other towers with concrete cores you see the core rising much faster than the rest of the building. Why is it that this tower the concrete core lags behind?

I would like to see someone pour a concrete core and then insert steel columns into it after it has cured.

The connections between the spandrel beams and core columns in this tower are actually surrounded in reinforced concrete after completion. Extra strong!

Exactly..They build steel structure first and then wrap it with hella strong concrete..And you got fortress..

1 World Trade Center Hardhat Tour: Concrete, Steel, and Views



Monday, October 11, 2010, by Joey Arak


Quote:
As part of Open House New York weekend, we were lucky enough to snag a spot on one of the hardhat tours of 1 World Trade Center, what will one day be North America's tallest and most well-read skyscraper.

Steel has now risen to the 42nd floor of the tower, and the sturdy skeleton will continue to inch upward until the first month of 2012. That slow ascent won't stop the first chunks of glassy curtain wall from being installed, a process that will begin next month.



Realtors would kvell over these high ceilings.


Wide-open office floorplate up on the 25th floor.


Looking out over the memorial plaza site, including one of the tower footprints/waterfalls.


Inside the core.


The Port Authority let tour-goers sign the same steel column signed by the Lt. Gov. of New Jersey.





Eventually there will be walkways here, but for now, don't look down.


Talk about mixing old and new! The pre-war facade next door couldn't be closer.
We're guessing the Condé Nast research assistants will get stuck on this side.
