wow, the daytime shot across Brooklyn is fantastic. Love seeing foreground context like that.

The daytime shot (the 3rd shot) is from somewhere in Jersey actually... but I agree with you

what a shame that 2 WTC will block most of 1 WTC from this angle Thats the negative which Foster's and BIG's share in common because of the tower's placement. At least 3 WTC looks great from here. It'll look even better with the side bracing lit after those god awful construction lights go off. Why aren't Silverstein and the PA doing anything about that again? The completed towers look incomplete every night because of it...

At least Foster's tower was gorgeous so it was never a negative that it would block out 1 WTC from some angles. That particular angle would have showcased the slant of Foster's diamonds and the indent on the eastern side of the tower. BIG's on the other hand...

3 WTC does look pretty nice from there though.

BIG's tower is more visually appealing to the BK side to me. I think at a certain angle, you can see the steps of 2WTC rise to just the upper floors of One WTC and its spire.

It was the opposite with Foster's tower, as the diamonds obviously faced Jersey. Those would have looked nice lit up.

But anyway they are taking their time on the other fins for 3WTC. From what I can see on Earthcam.

The BIG design totally doesn´t compliment the rest of the WTC, it just sticks out and yells for attention, IMO. Fosters design made sense, it glued wtc 3 and 4 with wtc1 to create a coherent skyline look. The diamonds facing to the memorial and being a nice detail to mark the corner of church and vesey street. BIG´s design has some nice features, but the location is so wrong. The overall massing, the stupid marketing of "tribeca blocks" stacked on top of each other etc. It´s just awful. His Via57 has a simmilar attention seeking design within the skyline context. The pictures taken from the Jersey side of the Hudson really smack the pyramid in your face and distract from the rest of the coherently appealing skyline. I just hope that there is a way to avoid his tower 2 design to happen.

To each their own. Personally I liked that Foster's tower gave the Brooklyn side the highest part of the building. You would have still been able to see the slant of the diamonds at least and I like that the roof of that design converged into the NE corner of the complex.

Overall of course I'd like the Foster version to be built. But I can accept BIGs version.

The really sore point for the BIG version of 2WTC is the affect it had on 3WTC's spires. Now that we see how great 3WTC's cross bracing shines in the sunset, it's a shame to have lost them. Really would have made the building more interesting and taller looking.

that is sexy. The best part is the side braces will continue to 'glow' into the night. Now if only Durst were to permanently fix Tower 1's spire and beacon.

The side bracing (esp when lit up at night) is by far my favorite part of 3WTC and saved it from banality imo.

Why is there white (scaffolding I assume) going up around parts of the spire on One WTC? Are they cleaning the metal or adding radio/TV transmission equipment? Or are they adding the radome in secret? Good to see the cladding nearly finished on this building, it's looking fabulous! Now just waiting to see 2 WTC rise in the hopefully near future.

Edit:Thank you Hudson 11 for answring my question. However, now I am seriously annoyed that they did not cover the whole spire in the nice original radome, since now it just looks ugly with parts in white and parts in grey. I do hope that possibly they cover up the whole spire as it was envisioned by the architect when the new complex is complete.

I believe it is a radome material to protect the recently installed communications equipment. Not the aesthetically pleasing radome envisioned by Childs, but one more akin to what you see on other antennas perched on top of tall buildings.

i.e.
