Open Trackbacks all WeekenD

“..June 28, 2006 shows the latest design of the
1,776-foot Freedom Tower in New York

Designed to evoke the Statue of Liberty’s torch, the spire that tops the tower will feature a revolving beacon that could change color and cast beams of light into the sky, while thousands of glass prisms will cover the building’s 20-story, windowless base.” (AP Photo/dbox inc.

Symbolic of the Declaration of Independence, the reworked 1,776-foot (541-meter) centerpiece of the World Trade Center site unveiled by architect David Childs will have a 186-foot tall (57 meter) base sheathed with rolled, heat-treated glass over concrete.

The tower is planned as a symbol of New York’s revitalization after the September 11 attacks in 2001, which claimed more than 2,700 lives at the World Trade Center.
Architects in New York unveil new Freedom Tower continues..
The new Freedom Tower design uses a high-tech laminated safety glass, which if attacked by a truck bomb would shatter into falling pebbles, not break into flying shards.”

    Wow .. that’s one tall building .. looks good, but I would imagine there is a long way’s to go to acceptance of the final design.

  2. Martin says:

    Hmm, I’m not sure yet. It’s attractive, but I still like the multiple tower concept – or that famous photoshop of the towers in the form of some fingers, that offered part of the reply I had in mind for the terrorists. ;)

    It’s very beautiful… I think it could stand to be a bit taller.

    The Character of an American Soldier…

    That is a good looking building! I wonder how long it will take to put it up. Seems like it took 4 years per tower for the WTC. I wish they’d get to work on it soon. It would be a nice slap in the face to al qaeda :)
