world financial center - battery park city

i feel like the entire design aesthetic of the world financial center and battery park city as a whole was to "humanize" the 60s-70s era superscapers of lower manhattan (wtc, 1 liberty, chase manhattan, etc) - relating them more to the street and spired towers of the past. without the contrast of the mighty twins, they have taken on a whole new persona. how will they relate to the liebskind-silverstein-childs version of lower manhattan soon to come?
