One World Trade Center
‘’One World Trade Centre’’ is the result of 12 years of planning and construction work. This iconic tower is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Centre complex in Manhattan, New York City. It is the sixth-tallest tower in the world. The building occupies an area that is nearly as big as the footprints of the original Twin Towers, which were destroyed in 2001. It is built upon a 56 metre tall windowless concrete base which is designed to protect the tower from truck bombs. Cable-net glass façades on all four sides of the building for the higher floors will be consistent with the other buildings in the complex. Above the podium, from the 20th floor, the tower’s square edges are chamfered back, transforming the square into eight tall isosceles triangles. At its middle, the tower forms an equilateral octagon in plan and then culminates in a stainless steel parapet whose plan is a 150-foot by 150-foot square, rotated 45 degrees from the base. One World Trade Center features a hybrid structure comprised of a high-strength concrete core surrounded by a perimeter moment frame of steel. While the adjacent memorial of the World Trade Centre speaks of the past, One World Trade Centre speaks about hope in the future as it rises up in the skyline void left by the fallen towers.
