Don’t share this with Michael Kimmelman. The New York Times architecture critic who this past Sunday blasted the design of One World Trade for its excess will only find more fuel for his fire with this infographic visualizing the world’s most expensive buildings. The recently opened One WTC is not only the world’s priciest construction, but it outdoes its runners-up, Las Vegas’s Palazzo and London’s Shard, by a staggering two billion dollars. The Emporis infograph was first uncovered by Chicago Tribune critic Blair Kamin, who tweeted the chart to supplement his own review in the Windy City paper.
