It seems the facade has been changed.

New facade is much better.

Nice! Modeling would have been hard. Thumbnails can be better for that size photos IMO.

Are the external faces of this tower tougher than the external surfaces of the former WTC? both towers have external steel frame and I'm so curious.

This revised facade looks great... imagine how it will look in the evening with all of the lights - the shape of the windows really sets it apart... they could build this where I live any day, I sure wouldnt mind!

Awesome cladding.

But the views are impaired on the areas with small windows.

the beehive structure create much more office space because with this structure it can hold the building more effectively thus the size of the central core can be reduce, and it give more space for the building compare to ordinary building of the same shape

Can't remember if I posted in this thread... heh. I love the external structural concept, but it's a little disappointing the architect didn't dare do anything more freeform with the idea - not that the straightforward square-based tower is so terrible... just... unimaginative. Or maybe that's all the site allowed.

Also, it's a honeycomb structure, not a 'beehive' structure
