    Thumbs up New WTC building chosen

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

    Sounds pretty cool!
    "The architect says that having calculated the arc of the sun, a wedge of natural light would funnel visitors to the memorial site, and that every September 11 between 8:46 a.m., when the first tower was struck by a plane, and 10:28 a.m., when the second tower collapsed, no shadows will be cast by his buildings.

    In all seriousness, I think that is a great design and a wonderful idea to do! That had to take some seriously calculations to figure out! Great post DarkLord918!

    He's making the buildings invisible?????? Sunlight will pass right through..... Now that's something I have to see.......

    The piece I'd really like to get a close look at though is the radar guided Surface to Air missiles near the top and the sign saying "Er.... You wanna try that again Osama?"

    Seriously though: I'm glad the US and NY specifically are not appeasing the LLL, (Lily Livered Left), by not erecting another tall building in the twin towers place as they were suggesting for fear it will happen again. That is what is know as successful terrorism..... They change your way of doing things...They win!!!!!

    I'm still a big fan of Acid's example of a proper rebuild......

    Thanks for the post. The design is akin to something out of a comic book - very cool.
