    That is just too cool... is this really a consideration... or just some guy messing around? I think it's awesome! Except I'd take the triangle off the top... I think it'd look better just as the four cylinders.

    opps... I meant "just the ~five~ cylinders." I don't like the pyramid on top. Why do they need that? I don't think they need the pyramid.

    I think it's supposed to make it really tall. Like the tallest building in the world. I guess it's to send a message.

    Don't forget the USA invented the sky-scraper... it's only right that we should have the tallest/best one.

    Someone would need to put up the $4-10 billion to build it. I think the money could be spent in other ways that would benefit society. How about a memorial that celebrates the lives of the people who died instead of an office building. I don't think those who died care if a big building is built and their lives are reduced to a capitalist venture on creating the biggest tower. Anyways, my $.02

    I don't mean to offend anyone, but I believe a memorial that big would be a waste. I think a lot has been done already to acknowledge the victums and their families. Perhaps a memorial in Central Park would be more appropriate.

    Also, it's not just the victums that suffered... we all suffered. Those buildings were "sacrad" to every American... not just the people who worked there. I think building a building such as the one Turner is proposing would serve as a kind of memorial for us all... for the pain EVERYONE suffered. It's saying to the world "Look... we got through this together... and we've come back stronger than ever."

    "Reduced to a capitalist venture" what is this?!?! Let me remind you that this country is what it is today because of Americans and their "capitalism ventures" and their drive to work hard and be the best.

    I know... but for some reason, at least to me it seems appropriate. Did you see the memorial that would be incorporated into indirectly in the middle?

    whether it's real or not..I see hope in this. This is a place where people can come to and find solace, that their loved ones are buried. this IS where they died, isn't it? Does it not make sense to have a memorial in their name, so they have a good end to this? I don't want to sound morbid, but the WTC is like a burial ground for a lot of people, does it not make sense to honor them by giving them a nice "head stone?" (I think that's what it's called :rolleyes: )

    I kinda went off on the whole graveyard analogy, but think about how much solace the families can have by this. My heart goes out to them. And really, I do see a lot of hope in this venture. It should be done.

    I don't understand why some of you are against a new WTC. Do you fear the terrorists that much? Should we let the terrorists know that when you mess with the United States you get nothing less but exactly what you want? Rebuilding the WTC is much more than just constructing a new building. It's an In-your-face terrorism.

    I forgot to tel you guys that you should vote at the wtc2002 site as well. Get as many votes as you can get in.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful to be on a plane returning ho,e from a vacation or business affair and look out of the window and see the first thing that reminds you how good it is to be a New Yorker and an American. That is how I felt every time I came back from a long vacation. I used to look out and be in awe at the magnificence of the towers. I loved that feeling. They made me feel special.

    Okay that's enough I'm getting misty.

    Yeah but this one would technically be taller becasue of the pyramid and antenna thingy. Something like 1739 feet.

    Your SDN name is after a catus right?

    The tower in China will probably also have a communications antenna.

    But this one will be better because we will have five cyclinders. They will only have 2 towers just like the current tallest building in southeast asia.

    Interesting... I don't like the last image that shows up - the one of it on the skyline. It just doesn't fit in at all.

    But I suppose the odds are pretty good it will be filled with a memorial or something like that. I was always a big fan of rebuilding them exactly the way they were, but I don't suppose that would be a smart idea. I mean, who would want to live and work there now?

    Anyway... I am moving this to Everyone.
