    I found them on Flickr and I meant to document that; problem corrected. I wish I did take those pictures, though.

    Well, you have every right to be disappointed. I am too.

    7WTC is hardly a work of architecture. Designers just filled the block it sits on with office space, raised the tower to X number of floors, and sheathed it in glass.

    That is not architecture. That is standard fare. That is another day at the office.

    I hate this building. For some reason it offends me personally. A building should be more than just nice glass, in my opinion.

    Oh dear, Citytect. If 7WTC offends you, then 10 Barclay is going to reach out, slap you in the face and call you names. 10 Barclay is a bad, bad building.

    ^Not so much. I don't like 10 Barclay either, but it doesn't irk me in the same way 7 does. The two buildings are equally as bad, in my opinion. I guess what really bothers me is how overrated I feel 7WTC is. That's not a problem with 10 Barclay, because no one pretends to like it.

    It's praised for showing a commitment to downtown most of the time, not really what it looks like...which is a box.

    Love it, cold and unassuming just like the rest of downtown.

    Maybe the 52nd floor and a few other floors are yet to be leased?

    Looks like the "Perfect Stranger" movie is coming to DVD and I heard something about some scenes being shot inside 7 WTC?

    ^Larry Silverstein is in that movie.

    That would be a great idea indeed, in my opinion, a building with such massing and facade; same with 7WTC clad in classic Art Deco.

    It would probably look something like this:

    A black, white, and red postmodern box? I shudder at the thought.

    Me too.

    I went from liking this building at the proposal stage, to hating it during construction, now I love it, it's one of my favorites in the city.
