Facts

  • The building was damaged during the collapse of the World Trade Center in September 2001.
  • This slender rectilinear prism has a structural ratio of 1:12 between the horizontal and vertical edges.
  • This taut black tinted glass curtain-wall is held by silicon adhesive and supported by invisible aluminum mullions. Its frameless windows blend harmoniously with its skin.
  • The extraordinarily slender design is the outcome of the developer's attempt to avoid the prolonged special approval process, which the larger footprint of a more economical lower tower would have required.
  • The name was intentionally misspelled with one "n" to provide a more visually balanced name.
  • Der Name des Gebäudes ist keinem Schreibfehler unterworfen. Das Hotel schreibt sich tatsächlich nur mit einem "n".
