The New Look of Two World Trade Center

Just last month it was announced that architectural design firm BIG would replace Foster + Partners as the lead architects of Two World Trade Center. Today, they’ve unveiled new renderings of an impressive building that draws inspiration from the nearby city blocks of NYC’s TriBeCa neighborhood. The new design features a series of “stacked” boxes that offer outdoor gardens at each tier and underlying LEDs that display real-time news to passersby. BIG describes the tower as a “new hybrid that merges the Modernist skyscraper with a contemporary interpretation of historic building setbacks.”
