Hmm...I still think THINK was cooler. Oh well. I didn't like the pit idea either. Well, let's see how it turns out!

well from what i hear, it may end up looking nothing like that since it's only a "suggestion" as to how it will look

i must be the only one who liked this one.

i first heard it at the very end of the abc news. peter jennings was wrapping up the nightly news, and he just threw it out there rather matter-of-factly. so i ran to my computer to let you guys know.

I wanted them to build the Gaudi. I know it wasn't in the top two but it was submitted. It would have proved that at least some americans have good taste.
