7 World Trade Center

As the first World Trade building reconstructed after September 11, major design criteria necessitated bi-directional blast protection, ventilation for the Con Edison transformers and unique lighting and reflective properties designed by the world-renowned design firm, James Carpenter Design Associates. The stainless steel, two panel design provided the strength, air flow and LED light reflection performance while delivering a stunning building façade.

Nighttime highlights the reflective effect of the Johnson "Tri-Wire" material of the exterior panels. In addition, 30 foot interior lobby column covers decorate structural concrete columns with the same material construction as the façade, creating a uniform aesthetic design and a powerful image, consistent with the building itself.
