7 World Trade Center
7 World Trade Center is a building in New York City, located across from the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan. The name '7 World Trade Center' has referred to two buildings: the original structure, completed in 1987, and the current one. On September 11, 2001, 7 WTC was damaged by debris when the nearby North Tower of the WTC collapsed. 7 WTC would eventually collapse completely later that day. Associated with the World Trade Center complex only by name, the new 7 WTC aspires to be a fresh image representing new growth. The 52-storey Manhattan tower looks to historic SOM predecessors as a model of simple form and functional representation, but moves beyond these precedents through contemporary building enhancements that have created a new model for life safety and sustainable design (text from Wikipedia and architects' website).
