Five Views of 2 World Trade Center
BIG's shape-shifting, stacked tower design for 2 WTC fills in the monolithic, corporate campus of the World Trade Center complex when viewed from the south. Seen from the north, it wants to suggest the varied cityscape of Tribeca, and from Brooklyn may look, for better or worse, like a giant bunch of children's blocks, about to tumble over.

3D scene setup, animation, rendering, compositing, and organization of 20+ media deliverables. 

2 WTC model provided by the BIG architecture firm. Additional city models from previous in-house projects and OSM Buildings (http://osmbuildings.org). 

In collaboration with Jeremy Ashkenas (development) and Graham Roberts (concept design/art direction).
