    Great job Derek. *I see too many simularities among the SOM proposals, excluding the Bear Stearns World Headquarters. *7 World Trade Center is similar to the towers of the AOL Time Warner Center. *The PA Bus Terminal, 270 Greenwhich Street, and the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center are nearly identical. *Finally, 237 Park Avenue closely resembles the NYSE Stock Exchange Tower.

    Great thread, great title. Innovative architecture from Fox and Fowle. KPF and SOM should take notice.

    Initially, I thought that the AOL Time Warner rendering was typically distorted through the use of a sneaky camera angle, but now that the complex is taking its final shape, I think it actually looks very similar to that rendering. *The angular feel is a pleasant surprise. *Unfortunately, it is missing from the rest of SOM's work.

    I agree with you Stern!

    Agreed, Stern pretty much hit it on the head. It's kinda like putting all the Hanna-Barbera cartoons together and seeing how they skimp and clone everything.

    Fox and Fowle is wonderful, and as seen by the renderings, the best is yet to come! Forummers who know me and the way I think can recall that I've said several times that the Travelstead tower is the one canned project that I would have love to have seen built. How did all those shoeboxes on 3rd, Park, and 6th Aves make it through???

    Bill Pederson (KPF) is doing some amazing work these days, it's just that it is not in New York... Asia mostly... even Miami.

    Default NYC's 3 Most Prolific Commercial Architects Since 1999

    great info. i agree that we have a lot of great projects coming up in the near future. We have the midtown complex, FSM, Pfizer, NYTT, BBT, AOL TW Center, 237 Park, 10 TSQ and many others.

    ...and Hearst.

    -----

    I still think KPF's best work is being built out of town.

    KPF - Miami


    KPF - Hong Kong


    KPF - Shanghai


    KPF - South Korea


    -----

    Please, somebody be the first jerk to point out that these buildings are all old news.

    true, we need buildings with flashy designs which are built in Asia. If we could create wonders like those with high efficiency levels, they would most likely be approved even with the protesting NIMBY's.

    I think that the Shanghai Financial Center would have been perfect for the WTC site. *I love that building, even if it's in Shanghai.

    See, I have a theory about the SFC as well... build a matching one just like it in the middle of China town and call it the Chinese-American Trade Tower. What'da think? Think they'll go for it?

    You know, to foster trade relations between China and the US... not to mention open China Town up to commercial development in a way that will seem respectable, even credible... Think I can win anyone over?

    Of course, the zoning would have to be changed, or a variance would have to be requested.

    Chinatown should be upzoned. It's close to Wall Street, and should be physically better integrated with the towers to the south. Besides the obvious demand by the Chinese community, many non-Chinese are now moving into the neighborhood. Gentrification is affecting this area. Lots of loft conversions, some new construction, especially on the eastern fringes.
