The granite in Seven World Trade really gave the lobby a warm feeling. The massive shiny fire command center feels slightly out of place though
That wasn't anything permanent. There was scaffolding there at the time, you can see it in this video:Hey all! Does anyone know what this blue thingy in front of 6 WTC is? I've only ever seen it in this one photo: View attachment 378116
If you have any other pictures of this blue thingy or of the other surrounding buildings in general (interiors specifically), please let me know as I need references for a model.
The WTC made a much more massive impression than the Petronas Towers in KL. I've seen both. To me, what made the towers so overwhelming was that it was just a ninety degree angle from bottom all the way to the top. The Petronas Towers (and the new 1 WTC as well) don't have that.Something that the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia had in common with the original WTC Twin Towers (besides both of them being supertall twin structures) is that there also is a mall that connects the towers together.
The mall that connects the Petronas Twin Towers together is called the Suria KLCC.
I still however like the World Trade Center Twin Towers a lot more than I like the Petronas Twin Towers
This shows a size comparison..

Despite the Petronas Twin Towers being considered taller than the WTC Twin Towers, the WTC Twin Towers still looks bigger than the Petronas Twin Towers do.
Especially two of them that are twins. They were truly something special...Yeah, it's uncommon to see a very tall building that's shaped like a block all the way to top and no irregular features.
The original mall under the original WTC complex was so cool looking. I love how the mall connected the lobbies of the Twin Towers together. A mall is the best way to connect buildings together since when going from a building to another building, you can do some shopping or get a bite to eat or both before you go into that building.Watch this. I like it.
I did some really, really deep research and found out that the two paintings visible in the background (this is the wtc 7 lobby) are titled
Laestrygonia I and Telepilus Laestrygonia II, respectively. They are both by American contemporary artist Frank Stella and were painted in 1997.
