Earlier this week, we reported that Bjarke Ingels was in talks to take over Norman Foster‘s design of 2 World Trade Center, noting that “if News Corporation and 21st Century Fox decide to move into 2 World Trade Center, as previously reported, developer Larry Silverstein may drop Foster’s design in favor of a new one by none other than starchitect of the moment, Bjarke Ingels of BIG.” Though Foster designed the tower ten years ago, it’s still the last at the site to rise. Ground broke in 2008, but in 2013 the Port Authority halted construction until tenants were lined up. Nothing has been decided yet, but Silverstein is said to be in talks with Mr. Ingels. How do you think this starchitect debacle is going to play out?
