Reincarnation of the World Trade Center

I don't want to start with the World Trade Center's development which became a rebuilding to forget 911. The towers look like they can be built anywhere. The memorial was quite ok,since it was like that the footprint was the scar of the destroyed twinnies. But again, you have to be imaginative to imagine the towers. Looking at this current cityscape (albeit just a rendering) makes you cringe because this side of New York became less iconic in terms of cityscape recall.

Now, maybe, there is hope with the Edgar Street Towers by IwamotoScott posted in Dezeen. Isolated from the commoners (Current World Trade Center Tower proposals), that tower on the right side has more umphh and scrotum to be a pompous ass, which is needed for New York to say that it is strong and resilient than just safe. Click on image and the Dezeen link to see more renderings of the interiors which has all the curves, tension and stretches of digital architecture. Don't you think the ground floor resembles World-Trade Center's Ground level? Only this time it is sexy. It is very hard to think that this doesn't have any allusions to the deceased twin towers. IwamotoScotts' is a morphed version if we are to think that late WTC towers are the hard-on version....too hard it was stiff, this version seems that the dickwands finally engage each other..which is gay.... Anycow, this proposal is a far cry from the stupid and misfits of the World trade Center proposal (first image, the group of buildings on the right). It is good that Edgars Street Towers are staying away from the losers....


  1. Great work. This project reminds me of the evolo project :

  2. These towers are amazing! Nice project and thank you for sharing this creative idea.
