What do you think of the new BIG Wtc building

Two WTC its an intriguing proposal (like most of BIG’s projects) . Its one of those forms that its instantly recognizable but at the same time alien to the skyscraper world because there is no precedent at that scale. It would overshadow the recently completed One WTC as an icon of post 9/11 NYC. As an architect, I would love to learn more about how the structure works, specifically structurally and in terms of core/vertical circulation.
