Spotted this on the Silverstein Properties website for 3WTC:

https://www.silversteinproperties.co...d-trade-center

Some of the night time lighting of the cross-bracing.

No kidding. Whoever made this idiotic decision should be banned from New York.

All that modern, pristine, blue glass. I absolutely adore the towers.

Outside is almost finished, but i think this area is very charged, the oculus is in a space that can't show its beauty

I always thought that Calatrava's hub could've look great on the place of the Memorial museum. The building could've had the very same function as the Memorial museum, because it has all the artistic flare, the wings would've looked great when perceived from every side. This is only my opinion.

However, I think it's great just as it is, after all, the steps of the future Performing Arts will have a great view on the building as it is positioned now.

Just another let down in this project to go with the 1WTC's crappy cheap looking antenna, no Windows On The World, awful WTC2 redesign, dull Arts Center redesign.....have I missed anything out?

Sorry didn't realize this was a "happy thoughts" only forum.
Without the spires this tower from across the river looks like just another boxy skyscraper....
WTC 4 on the other hand is majestic....
