Danish architectural company BIG has released images for the fourth and last skyscraper to restore NYC’s historic skyline. The company’s founder Bjarke Ingels was bestowed the unenviable job of creating a tower that was ground-breaking and modern yet rooted in history. The  images look like that vision was realised. The design involves of 7 unique buildings sitting on top of each other, it will rise a staggering 1,340 feet above the Big Apple.

Ingels described the design as follows:

“The completion of the World Trade Center will restore the majestic skyline of Manhattan and unite the streetscapes of TriBeCa with the towers Downtown. To complete this urban reunification we propose a tower that will feel equally at home in TriBeCa and the World Trade Center. From TriBeCa, the home of lofts and roof gardens, it will appear like a vertical village of singular buildings stacked on top of each other to create parks and plazas in the sky. From the World Trade Center, the individual towers will appear unified, completing the colonnade of towers framing the 9/11 Memorial. Horizontal meets vertical. Diversity becomes unity.”

…Great.

Peep the Wired video.
