Bjarke gotta be joking. He did as bad as he could. How the magnificent Foster tower ended up being this monstruosity? F*CK YOU BIG, F*CK YOU!.

I read the article, it doesn't look like anything is 100% set in stone yet. But if the deal goes thru... this is going to be the design most likely.

It looks like they ripped the spires off of 3 so that the height drop for this pile of trash would be less noticeable.

2 World Trade will stand 1,340 feet. That's a mammoth tower.

Height means nothing when the building is shit, it looks like a toddler trying to stack blocks.

I must say though even thoughh this is nothing compared to fosters design, the lower manhattan skyline render on the article doesnt look all that bad. Almost looks like a sort of twin tower with one wtc

Man this is bad. It just throws the whole skyline off, feels like it 'sucks the air out of the room'. Worse when you add 125 Greenwich Street.
