From t.v. sources--
The sponsors of a design the commemorative project at Ground Zero contest have picked an entry that will be the tallest building anywhere, ever. Is this really a good way to remember those who died on that day?
The building will be something like 1400' high, which means it will be taller than the twin buildings in Kuala Lumpur, which means we're better than them.
The first 70 floors will be occupied by businesses and what not, whatever they put into offices, and the top 40 floors or so will be kept empty, conceivably to remember the victims. It is rather a creepy and strange idea, to build this monster and keep the top half empty, as if we can store ghosts up there, or as if to say, we will never forget you because we built all this useless office space up above where the important office space is.
From the design I saw on tv, the building will have twists and turns in it, to make it more unique. But won't this just make it more like a giant veined phallus?
The whole thing is creepy. Is this a good way to remember the victims?
