New NY World Trade Center Design Project

Almost 14 years after Sept. 11, the world finally knows what the last major tower of the massive, complex, fraught World Trade Center site will look like. This morning, via a long story in Wired, Danish architectural wunderkind Bjarke Ingels unveiled his firm’s elaborate vision for 2 World Trade Center. It’s officially time to bid farewell to that Norman Foster-designed cluster of diamonds.

The new design for the office tower—still bounded by Vesey and Fulton streets to the north and south and Greenwich and Church streets to the west and east—is purposefully asymmetrical. There’s a stair-step facade with green balconies at each setback that faces east, and a more traditional glassy curtain wall that looks west, toward the Sept. 11 memorial plaza, One World Trade, and the Hudson River.

Bjarke Ingels and his team also unveiled a video about the tower and its design; Silverstein updated its website to reflect a host of new info about 2 World Trade, which will be the second-tallest of all the WTC towers, after 1,776-foot-tall One World Trade Center.

2 World Trade will have amazing terraces! “The blocks get smaller as the building rises, creating setbacks where Ingels has designed a series of outdoor gardens, one for each block,” Wired’s Andrew Rice reports. “They are supposed to evoke varying climates, from tropical to arctic. In the parts of the building occupied by Fox and News Corp, cafés for employees will adjoin the gardens.”

“Winding staircases set against the glassy exterior wall are meant to ensure that the companies feel internally connected, rather than divided into floors and fiefdoms,”
