Thread: 7 World Trade Center - by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill

    That kind of reinforced concrete core has been used in Asia and continental Europe since the very early skyscrapers. The Tour Montparnasse has one.

    The new 7 World *Trade Center will not merely be the newest office tower in New York, it will be the metaphorical and symbolic representation of the spirit of redevelopment and renewal in Lower Manhattan. A slender glass pylon marking both the entrance to the World Trade Center, and the future of New York’s downtown, the Building is a smaller and more airy tower than its predecessor.

    David M. Childs, FAIA of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill L.L.P., working with glass artist and designer James Carpenter, has used natural light and reflectivity to create a shimmering animated façade whose appearance will quietly transform with the changing patterns of sunlight and weather.
    I'm still disappointed in the facade of AOL/TW

    I'll ditto that Zippy. To not take advantage of the unique massing of AOL but instead to hide it behind a blandly consistent glass wall does not speak well of Childs.

    Are they still working on the foundations? Have they at least begun to raise steel? It sure is taking forever...

    Steel only starts at level ten I think. As of last week the full building footprint (vaults and core) were in place on the first floor.

    On the 6th picture down, is that the Trade centre being constructed in the pit, in front of the 7 wtc site?

    That's the "temporary" PATH station being built.

    Was out on Saturday and the site was busy as a hive. *Activity has significantly picked up now that the steel has arrived.

    That's good news.

    Good. Maybe the steel will start rising soon. They wouldn't have steel brought in just to let it sit there for a month right? So the steel probably will be starting sometime in Early or mid september. Does anyone have any information on this?

    I walked by the site on Sunday, and I didn't see any steel except rebar.

    THe substations will rise to 135 ft. That would be 9-10 floors of Verizon. They appear to be about half way up.

    I think that they will change cranes after the concrete is poured.

    One of the local news stations (ABC or NBC - I can't recall) did a piece on the arrival of the steel into the metro area. *It had interviews with the folks delivering it and the steel manufacturer and took the whole "rebuilding America / fighting back against those that would want to harm America angle. *The steel was not shown on site, but being delivered to a staging area in NJ. *That was the gist of it. Unless of course I actually had Fox news on, in which case whatever it was I heard can be assumed to be a big lie.

    I can't remember which building was the subject, but I remember a TV program that showed how steel gets from the foundry to a Manhattan construction site. A staging area is selected with a convenient route to the site. The sections are delivered overnight on the day they will be installed.

    7WTC seems to be rising faster the last few weeks.
