New World Trade Center Blasted As A Disaster
Banksy, the elusive British artist nearing the end of a month-long New York City residency, published an op-ed column slamming the design of One World Trade Center, the 104-story skyscraper scheduled to be opened on the World Trade Center site next year.
"As a visitor staying New York for the past few weeks one thing has become very clear to me," Banksy wrote in the op-ed. "You've got to do something about the new World Trade Center. That building is a disaster. Well no, disasters are interesting. One World Trade centre is a non-event. It's vanilla. It looks like something they would build in Canada."
"The attacks of September 11th were an attack on all of us and we will live out our lives in their shadow," Banksy continued. "But it's also how we react to adversity that defines us. And the response? 104 floors of compromise?"
