Freedom Tower-US

This is the Freedom Tower, Manhattan, New York, US. The memorial “9-11” tragedy makes this building gathering it’s famous. This Freedom Tower constructed in the wreckage of the WTC, World Trade Center. Designed by one of Donald Trumps man, Skidmore, Owings &Merrill, it should be the finest building project ahead. Surrounded by WTC memorial park, this complex will be finished in 2011, and will reach 1.776 feet high. From the building design, especially the commercial one, it looks like a sculptural skycrapper covered by a glazing materials. Constructed with a lot of iron skeletons, this building figured as an aesthetic symbol, including it’s antenna. Also, the glasses material covered the commercial’s skin make this building brighter than its surrounding, and it definitely will become the focal point. The next buildings, just stand as a supporting figure for the main building. Salute for the architect, they are doing a nice work!
