Signed it ! With a comment: Because the new WTC 2 Bjarke Ingels/BIG design is hideous and without class/ dignity and it doesn't respect the memory of the old WTC towers.

Am I the only one who thinks this could be good? It's a concept as we all know- but there are some things that could be tweaked. There is no doubt Fosters design was the unofficial centerpiece of this complex for alot of people but it's not coming back. Honestly, if they got rid of the cantilevers on the north side and "turned" the building to actually face the memorial I don't think it would be terrible. At the moment it just feels disjointed and kinda outside the complex, that's my main problem.

What a so ugly desing. Also, all those green terrace, are they really needed and useful? Do they really know that won't get those "tree" seen on the general render, just grass?

...but sorry, they said that because of the slanted roof of fosters WTC 2, news corp. does not have enough space on the roof to place their satellites ...I don't know much about engineering & architecture but isn't there a flat part on Fosters WTC2 on the top? Isn't that enough?? :-D

i'm still fighting

"World Trade Center starchitect Bjarke Ingels would have built the twin towers back the way they were"

http://www.nydailynews.com/life-styl...icle-1.2254683

Turns out he (Bjarke Ingels) is a fan of the old WTC... Doesn't make sense ??? Then where is the respect ??? Why does it not show the least bit in his design ???

Sorry if repeating earlier posts ? I haven't had time to read all todays posts yet but see this new design for 2 WTC ?
As this looks to be a completely new design...Bad or good ? yet the site already has some infrastructure in place,I think ? This aerial shot shows roughly the outline of the previous design with lift cores etc in place...I guess this is at or just above street level so will the entire site have to be jackhammered back to the basement ? Lots of questions...

It looks like petition doesn't have many signers. Is there other petition somewhere?

Didn't checked the thread for a few weeks, and just saw it in the 1 on 1 in at the start page.
F**k you BIG!!

If they were serious architects, they would have said: "Build Fosters design. It's the best option for this site."

Backlash saved us from Liebskind's monstrosity. It may still save us yet. If people can get worked up about some garden at the Frick they certainly can over this.

And no one is signing a mispelled petition.

The "best option" is whatever the client wants. It's an office building before it's a work of art. Ideally it would be both.

This is a private development.........you can't tell people how to build their property other than zoning/codes/ordinances./community boards If that starts happening then you can be sure it would be abused. Weather we like it or not, it's not our property.

With all due respect (and I really mean that) you guys are trying to get the Murdochs to listen to you. Have you ever watched Fox News? They make up their minds and then tell you what you should think. You'll make more progress trying to hug an alligator.

BIG is a load of pathetic disfuctional architects that have no real knowledge on true architecture, my favorite tower on site is getting replaced by a hunk of shit just because a company decided they want more room and different floor plans. This is unfair to not only the citizens of New York and America but to the entire world who would rather have Fosters design as a a New York landmark than this BIG monstrosity.



^ I say we all call BIG and let them know what a monstrosity they have created. I have already left links to the two different petitions of the design on BIG's instagram. I hope Bjark sees that we loads of people despise his tower.
