AAI Architects, P.C., the New York Office of Adamson Associates Architects, was the Architect of Record for Tower 4 designed by Maki and Associates.
World Trade Center Tower 4 at 150 Greenwich Street is composed of a 2,400,000-sf “minimalist” tower facing the Memorial Museum and a podium that becomes a catalyst in activating and enlivening the immediate urban environment as part of the redevelopment efforts of Downtown New York. The tower embraces an abstract quality – light, cool in color, and ephemeral – changing with the light of day. The two obtuse edges of the tower on the southwest and northeast corners are articulated with dramatic indentations to appear slender and sharp. Inside, a single edge forms two offices with a window from the open office to allow for uninterrupted views at the corner tip of the floor. The office lobby, with a 47-foot ceiling height, faces Greenwich Street. The formal composition is symmetrical and offers panoramic views of the Memorial Park. Facing Church Street is an 85-foot atrium, which will amalgamate the Transit Hall and retail into a single, identifiable whole featuring multiple cascading floors.
