New WTC Plans

CNN has revealed seven new plans to replace the World Trade Center towers. None of them are that good, IMNSHO, but at least they aren't as hideous as the first batch. And four of them would be the tallest buildings in the world. At least they seem to get the idea that the replacements for the originals should be something remarkable, groundbreaking, unlike the pedestrian offerings from the first proposals. I think the real memorial to the victims of this tragedy will be the replacement buildings themselves, not some park or museum they dump on the site.

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
