I'm sure most are disappointed and cant imagine how many's hearts have been ripped off, but I put my hands on my chest, and solemnly feel proud for this, and in that pride, I wanna scream out FUTURE!!!
Sure, the former one was a jewel but this is just an other terrific thing. I pray they build this.

ok, i followed this thread for a while and was always waiting for fosters design being built, but this announcement is probably the biggest disappointment of this year if not for the whole decade. I'm sorry but even a 6 year old child could built something better with Lego than Ingels proposal..

If there exist an architecture god, please help!!

i'm so sorry for all the new yorkers...

This design is the modernism equivalent of a commieblock. It's painfully generic.

The only thing fine about this design is the height, which they decreased again, but thankfully only a few feet. Other than that it really sucks and does not fit the World Trade Center. It's a freakin staircase pretty much. We skyscraper fans could have came up with something better...

I read the arcticle http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/20...-bjarke-ingels

So this building was ostensibly designed to meet the requirements from Murdoch..well, fine..nothing aginst that..but not for such an iconic location!
And again its all about the money...

This design is somewhat something i come up with when being super uninspired in sketchup, building a box and randomly removing parts of it to make it appeal "interesting2 only to realize i built something totally wrong looking and deleting it.

The straight wall facing WTC 1 makes the complex loose itīs entire movement and ampleness the diamonds of Fosters design gave it. The entire spiral effect is visually gone. Now the complex lacks itīs coherent look, it looks like three random building with a standalone misplaced center piece building which is WTC 1. It looks so outdated when seen from the harbour already, the Steinway like steps are completly proportionless.

I just canīt get my head around what they have done to tower 2 at all.

The design itself isn't that bad but the old Tower 2 design was way better and would fit way better in the WTC Complex.
I really don't know why they made this, it's a very big disappointment in my eyes. I really hope they won't build it!

Build it as a single tower anywhere and it's ok but not as part of the WTC!
