WORLD TRADE CENTER. Completing the vision.

Giroud Pichot

Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, Fumihiko Maki, and SOM to replenish the vision of New York City.

Gaspar Giroud Pichot presents the renaissance of the New York City skyline by means of combining the distinct image of the city with sophisticated digital techniques. To the tune of the unmistakable soundtrack, Giroud Pichot's one-minute animation integrates the computer-generated rendering of four skyscrapers to be erected on the World Trade Center site into a spectacular aerial footage of the location.

On the occasion of a presentation organized by Silverstein Properties and premiering the design of three new towers by Lord Norman Foster, Lord Richard Rogers and Fumihiko Maki (in addition to SOM current plan for the Freedonm Tower), "WORLD TRADE CENTER" unveils to a wider audience the architects' vision of the future downtown Manhattan.
