Have NYC authorities any influence on this project ? I mean about keeping this primary Foster's project not changed of course...

It would be too bad to lost such a icon of new WTC and one of NY icons

NYC authorities have absolutely no influence on the design of the project. There are certain parameters they obviously can have some control over but the actual design is not one of them, thankfully! They totally screwed up the design of the base of WTC 1 by requiring the reinforcement that made it a bunker instead of a skyscraper. They didn't directly required what was designed but the requirements imposed forced a major redesign.

I actually like the base of One WTC. I could understand why people wouldn't like it... but I think it looks nice.

The base is one of the reasons I like that tower. It gives the building a unique look, and I think it's cool the way it lights up.

I like the base o WTC to its aesthetics are unique. even though one wtc is not the best tower ever we can't complain because the other proposals were just horrible.

The base of 1WTC was a necessary evil. There was genuine fear that companies would refuse to move to the tower without such an obvious safety feature. Look no farther than Chris Rock's joke about it being the "Not-Going-In-There Tower". A lot of people still feel that way, all those years later. The base was designed to not only keep people safe, but make people FEEL safe. As for the rest of the tower, I really don't understand why it's getting so much criticism. I really like the simple geometry of it. It's like a great obelisk soaring over the skyline.

I heard SSC likes boxes. So we put boxes on top of boxes.

The base doesn't go well with the rest of the complex. I would be horrified if this went through.

I like cladding, but not the form. Simple box-shape tower with twin towers look like sections and this cladding would be better.

Bjarke Ingels just ruined the uniformity of the whole WTC. This ruins the whole site. I'm pro development and love new glass buildings but this, this is horrifying. I don't see how a person could like this while looking at its surroundings. I already had a feeling Mr. Ingels had such a different taste of architecture, he wouldn't be able to design something nice. Just a huge wasted opportunity.

I just realized ho FUGLY the view looking south from midtown could be, if this gets through.

It´s a nightmare of a design. -.- From a grand icon, down to a rubbish design.
