World Trade Center, New York
Model completed in 2012
About this creation
This model is approximately 1/650th scale, similar to my other skyscrapers.

Builder's Addendum; April 2012:Ten years of waiting. Five years of study and planning. One year of building. More than 20,000 LEGO elements.

To those that lost their lives on that terrible day and to those that have dedicated theirs to rebuild it

An overview of the model, which includes all five new World Trade Center buildings, the September 11th National Memorial, and the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. There are more than 20,000 pieces in the model and it weighs over 32lbs.




The view along Church St. L-R, 150 Greenwich (4 WTC), 175 Greenwich (3WTC), the transportation hub oculus, and 200 Greenwich (2WTC).






A view looking toward the southeast, reveals the diminutive 7 WTC tower. Size is a relative term here, 7 WTC is 741ft tall.







The oculus of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. This soaring structure was designed by the famed architect Santiago Calatrava. The use of flex tubes allowed a lot design freedom in recreating it in LEGO. Unfortunately due to the same flexibility, they are difficult to keep aligned and pointing straight!






The National September 11th Memorial and Museum. Two pools of cascading water mark the location of the former twin towers.



The Greenwich St sides of 3 (left) and 4 World Trade Center (right). The upper portion of 4 WTC angles toward the memorial as a measure of respect. 3 WTC features a structural truss facade. The modeling is accomplished using flex tubes, rail plates, and 1x1 bricks with handle.






Retail shopping along Church St. Do I see a LEGO store in there?







The Fulton Street entrance to One World Trade Center. Visible in the lobby is a slotted architectural wall that doubles as a blast protection barrier.

I'm in the midst of doing a modern history project (as ironic as that sounds) on 9/11. This build excellently commemorates and honors that horrific day in the recent history of the U.S. Excellent work.

This is possibly my favorite MOC of yours and one of my favorites I have ever seen.I could go on and on about the amazing detail you've included. I am from New York and I visited the memorial last month. The progress on the towers inspired me and I was overjoyed to see this creation of yours. And last but not least, possibly most outstanding is that you accurately recreated something that partially doesnt even exist yet. Bravo, Spencer!

Literally a couple hours ago I was sitting, staring at the real thing. Wondering what it will be like to sit there when it's done. Waiting for it to be so. I think this will hold me over for a while. Wonderful work as always. :)

Phemonal work Spencer! There are so many different qualities of this model that are so masterfully executed: the use of wedge plates and slope bricks to cleanly seal the various angles throughout the complex, the flex tubes and handle bricks for the x-bracing on Tower 3, the entrance details in Tower 1 - I could go on for awhile. Quite a tremendous testament to the art of building in microscale!
