70 Story tower w/ perhaps the performing arts center at the base?

Foster's 2 WTC isn't happening so this seems very sketchy,,,

^ Not to mention, the WTC has the non-cheap spire.

REX Named Lead Architect for the Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center

Quote:

The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) announced today that they have selected the design team for the Performing Arts Center at the World Trade Center (PACWTC). Local Brooklyn-based firm REX — which was founded by principal Joshua Prince-Ramus as the New York office of OMA — beat out Danish firm Henning Larsen Architects and Dutch firm UNStudio for the lead role on the project. In order to tackle the specific needs of a mixed-use performing arts space, REX will be partnering with Davis Brody Bond as executive architect and Charcoalblue as theater consultant.

...

While REX's design for PACWTC has not yet been revealed, some of their earlier conceptual work may provide insight into their plans for the World Trade Center site. In 2002, The New York Times Magazine organized the Downtown Study Group to imagine alternatives to LMDC's plans at the time.

Design is announced - http://www.rex-ny.com/the-perelman-wtc/

I like it.

Rizzo Sep 8, 2016 6:45 PM

^ Very cool. Kind of like a lantern backdrop to the memorial.

JSsocal Sep 8, 2016 7:16 PM

Definitely like it, but wow this complex has become so rectangular. Thank the oculus for being the one exception

drumz0rz Sep 8, 2016 8:23 PM

Hmm... I like the inside idea. The configurable performances spaces seem like a good idea. The outside though.... kinda like a glowing borg cube... I'm sure the actual façade will look a lot better in person, because that render looks pretty ugly. Also, I feel like putting a giant glowing cube next to the already glowing cube base of 1 WTC and across the street from the equally bright at night blue glow from the lobby of 1 WTC is a bad idea...

That open plaza between this building at 1 WTC is just screaming to house Koening's Sphere... I can't think of a more perfect location for it.

Actually, it's been confirmed that the Sphere will be located directly to the east of the church.

i read they are using marble from the quarry for the lincoln memorial. then its supposed to be sheathed in some kind of transparent casing that should protect the marble and allow it to be lit up different ways.

pico44 Sep 10, 2016 3:27 AM

Looks really good. A more than worthy addition.

I love all the different ways in which the theaters can be organized.

With the memorial, the PATH station, and all the towering skyscrapers, this is going to be pretty spectacular square when finished.

I made a gif from the video to highlight the glossiness that this will have (check out the reflection)

Ive watched this video probably ten times. If the materials are top notch, this could be one of the great pieces of architecture in New York.

it was inspired by the rare book library at Yale which is one of my favorites.
So, hopefully this will be great.

Anyone think they know how this will be built. Like a steel or concrete core? Or built with steel beams or all concrete? I think it is going to be all steel

BStyles Dec 4, 2016 3:47 PM

Concrete cores are typically for skyscrapers. It would also detract from he fact that there is an enormous amount of interior space for the concert hall.

I would think steel encased in concrete, with steel for cantilevering purposes and concrete to reduce the vibrations caused by the trains below, and the VSC's exit ramp.

I really like the interior renderings for this building. Will be a great addition to the complex. Has a strange spacey feel from the outside, but its lighting at night looks really promising.

yankeesfan1000 Mar 28, 2017 12:41 AM

Convenient bump, this might be dead.

If this gets scrapped, I wonder if they'll look to incorporate a similar type of space into a mixed use building with a hotel/residential component.

JSsocal Mar 28, 2017 3:09 AM

^No.

There won't be a hotel or residential on this site.

JZeig1 Mar 29, 2017 12:01 AM

Pinhead
 
OK, I hate to be the one to mention this, and it's not that I don't like the rendering; although, I preferred original one with the stacked glass boxes, but did anyone see the move "Hellraiser"?

I'm just saying...

LOL :shrug::rolleyes:

Not sure how to post the pic, but based on the earthcam this is making some good progress.
