Rebuilding a legacy
The completion of the World Trade Center II will restore the majestic skyline of Manhattan and unite the streetscapes of Tribeca with the towers Downtown. To complete this urban reunification BIG have proposed a tower that will feel equally at home in Tribeca and the Financial District.
Our film, used to launch the design, combines a range of film-making and visualisation techniques to convey the significance and grandeur of the building and the project as a whole. During Bjarke Ingels' introduction, motion graphics serve to explain the fundamentals of the building and how they connect the two neighbourhoods.
Moving to the building itself, a spiralling camera shot moves us through the CG visualised building as we catch glimpses of everyday life. Paying homage to New York City as a place of limitless possibility, excitement and imagination, the film captures the spirit of the city in a short space of time.
