Ehhh. I wish they would have just rebuilt the original twin towers. I think the new 1wtc looks good, but I like the original way more.

What you describe is a "tree" structure. Although I have seen many on paper, including a mile high tower designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, I have seen very few actually built.

The problem is, like trees, they sway far too much in the wind. They just aren't rigid enough.

Tower One is a "tube/tree hybrid" the core being the tree part and the tube is the perimeter, also called "Wind Frames" consisting of the columns and spandrel beams with moment connections at all beam to column connections.

The Twins were a "Tube" structure. The Sears Tower is a "Bundled Tube" design.

I wonder why the slow down on the cladding? Maybe they weren't happy with the alignment?

this building rocks! and i have to say its quite an improvement to the old world trade centres which were quite boring... although they were a great symbol of economic power when it came down to the looks of them they were quite drab...this is a step on the right direction. i wish they hadn't come down the way they did though :'(

I love how New York is going to beat Taipei at its own game by having a huge spire, like when it passed the Sears Tower and Twins by putting up a decorative spire. Eat it

you mean the petronas towers? Taipei 101 beats them both by roof height as well as pinnacle height.

Yeah, I know about the mile hight tower..I was reading about it in the Wright's books...Gotta say this "tree" structure is really interesting and challenging...I saw a few proposals on this forum too...I hope we'll see more of it in the future...

Whose house is THAT?!? ( I know this thread is not about this but he asked )

Church of our Lady of the Rosary
This pair of Georgian town houses originally designed in 1800 by John McComb Jnr was restored in 1965 as a shrine Church dedicated to Elizabeth Ann Seton. Canonized in 1975 as the first American-born saint, Seton lived here with her family in the early 1800's.The exterior of each building, faithfully returned to it's original condition with columns presumably cut from ships masts, provides a small reminder of the character of this fashionable residential neighborhood at the beginning of the 19th century. * 7-8 State St (between Whitehall and Pearl Sts )
From one of my old 1980's NY tourist books.....
