From an interview posted today, Ingles says:
Quote:
"For the facade we looked at this idea of relating to our neighbors, but also from inside you want transparency. And from the outside, texture, and materials that patina, or have warmth. We’re looking at the idea of a shingle, both vertically and horizontally. It’s facing away from the southwest corner, so from that perspective it’s an all glass tower. But from the east or north, you can see the material of the mullion. The same is true when you look from below — you can see the mullions. So from the inside it gives you two different feelings."
Also from a render at the base, it looks like there will be vertical fins just like the old design had. I have high hopes for the facade.

I hadn't followed this thread for months and I cannot beleive that Foster's gorgeous project has been abandoned...what a shame................................

The new design cannot hold a candle to the previous one indeed, such a waste...


It kinda reminds me of Renzo Piano's new courthouse currently under construction in Paris (way shorter though):

I agree. This new design is such a disappointment.

The Paris one looks better and is more detailed than this. I wouldn't like it at the WTC either, though.

Actually if this building would be shorter, would be better... not such a big eyesore.

Size really work bad with poor design.

At least it emphasises the beauty which is 30 Park Place to it's left.

I agree the scale is totally wrong for this design it doesn't work at the proposed height at a lesser height it would be less of an eyesore but as proposed, it looks like stacks of blocks that are about to fall over. Norman Foster's was so clean & elegant & this one also looks very fragile so hopefully it won't be built.

Excuse me, but the new design looks hideous compared to Foster's. I always thought WTC2 was the most attractive tower at the site. Why is Foster's design being replaced?

Or better yet, build it to ~800ft, and stop there because Fox News got bankrupted. WIN-WIN

Typical up their own arse architect, probably thinks people who criticise his designs are too stupid to understand them (a la modern artists), and so builds the whackiest designs possible to make up for lacking real architectural skill and grace.

What a shame, that near 1WTC and the Memorial there are no twin towers, like 2WTC, instead 3 and 4 WTC

Well I'm still not won over by the new design but after reading that interview I can appreciate the thought that went into the redesign a bit more.
