This shot makes it look okIslander said:LOL, you guys are too much. Here are some better shots in the meantime.
Nah, I didn't take these photos, nowhere near California. You can only hope that the lattice portion is this visible if actually built.MattSal said:savethewtc, did you take these photos? If so, why didn't you take any from further away.
Of course it's going to look hideous from close up . . . it's made of Legos for Christ's sake.
But it is where it is, and therefore it is important that they get it right. You can't just place anything you want in such a site of importance. 1776 ft does not make this symbolic by any means. It's just forced symbolism for the papers to report in bold. Maybe this kind of weird design would work in another era or location, but not in NYC.M.

Even if you do think it looks ugly it's what it represents that matters. I just get upset when people bash this design. It doesn't look ugly. If this tower was somewhere else everybody would be loving this tower.
