7 World Trade Center Description

Project Summary

While the new World Trade Center (WTC) complex aims to enrich the economic and cultural lives of the lower Manhattan community, it also demonstrates a new vision of sustainable design in practice. 7 WTC, the first of 7 buildings scheduled for construction at the WTC site, was the first in the complex to be rebuilt after being destroyed in the 9/11 tragedy. The 10th Floor of building 7, the WTC Marketing Center serves a unique purpose: the space was designed to educate the public on the plans for construction and what the community has to look forward to, and to expo available space in the buildings yet to be completed. The centerpiece of this space is a scale architectural model showing the plans for all 7 buildings. The LED driven model is integrated into the lighting system, using Lutron DMX control with 35 zones to show potential tenants what areas of each building their staff would reside in. Each building is split into “banks” containing several floors (usually 10-20.) These banks can be illuminated in the model one at a time to show precise office locations, entrances, exits, nearby amenities, transportation routes, and cross streets nearest to their location.
