Which WTC Design Proposal Do You Like Best?

The two finalists have been chosen.

http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/Northeast...sts/index.html





I really like the THINK proposal (the top picture), and I would be very excited to see that built!

Your opinion?

Check out the link as well. There is a sublink called "Interactive: Two Proposals" that go much more in-depth. I really am impressed with THINK's proposal.

Definately THINK.

However can someone explain to me what the whitish object near the top of the two structures that links them is?

Please don't get mad, but it made me shudder for a moment I thought it was the shape of a plane???

I couldnt figure it out. But it is beautiful..

I am also going with THINK. The online material on this proposal is impressive.

But, I must ask WWOD?

What Would Ouizy Design?

I like the THINK one...the other one would look out of place with the rest of the NY sky line.

THINK. I like the idea of the lights at night, and the lattice is really cool! The other one you can see the "pit" of the old WTC..

Each finalist also allocates space for a memorial, a major new train station, shopping areas, a hotel and parks.

actually seeing the pit is one of the good things about the second idea. the victims' families are particularly in favor of this because they can be closer to their loved ones this way.

as for the second one, it looks neat but there's no office space in the towers which means more office space needed on the ground, including possibly pushing in to the tower footprints.

I still don't understand why they want to build a tall structure there. After what happened, no one will want to rent office space at the top of a building there. tall buildings are just going to be another bull's eye for terrorists.

That's why I like THINK. No office space in the tall structures, but the skyline is still restored.

As someone who's liked the Libeskind plan since the start, I'm gonna post another picture of the proposal 'cause the one shown on this thread doesn't do the plan justice.

I like it too and I think it should be restored. But it's kind of creepy in a way.
