    Libeskind?
    Childs?

    Is tower 2 getting taller?

    It would look that way to me. According to earlier models I've seen, the roofs of the other four buildings sweep up toward the peak of FT's scraper portion. Now it seems that the angle is headed to the top of the structure itself. Notice, if you would, how the apparently more pronounced angularity of Tower Two reflects this.

    Maybe its just poor model making, but we really haven't heard anything of the other towers in a while.

    The other towers have yet to be designed, though, right?

    I don't think they even have a developer lined up to build the other towers (at least if they do, I haven't heard of it). The towers modeled in the master plan are merely theoretical, until market demands entice some developer to build them.

    Norman Foster, Fumihiko Maki, and Jean Nouvel will design the other towers. Here is some more information.

    Thank you dbhstockton; this forum is very enlightening, and I enjoy reading and providing information when I can.

    Before setting his sight on the Statue of Liberty, Libeskind had his own vision for what should rise on the site, rejected for obvious reasons by the LMDC...
