Two towers are better than one.

I also like more the TWIN TOWERS II.

I think an even greater tower should be built, but this time making it even larger, grander, and more American! Do a mix of modern and art deco, make it tall with lush flowing gardens and a grand monument dedicated to the dead!
I like Alexander Stoddart's idea for the monument.


However, after 9/11, I'm not sure anything will be able to heal those wounds, not the grandest structure in the world. We Americans have adapted, and moved on, life continues but we will NEVER forget it, and the new towers should reflect this.

I would prefere the TTII because one simple thing. The World Trade Center was known because of what? The Twin Towers and now you make a new World Trade Center without it's icon? If they made 2 Freedom Towers as someone showed up there i would agree but with Different name ofcourse, South Tower and North Tower or WTC 1 and WTC 2 as the old Twins.

It would be a dream to see that.

Too bad it will probably never come true...as much as I know, there's not enough space for another tower? Or in any case, nobody intends to do such a thing.

2 towers could have been constructed instead of the current memorial.

I like the new design. I think it'll be a great new addition. Would be better in "twin" form but it won't happen.
People, don't forget that even Parisians hated the Eiffel Tower when it was built. Stop bitching.

FT is just so awkward looking. From the base all the way up to the spire. I wish I could explain better.

I love the original WTC. It totally looked like it belonged in Neo-Tokyo from Akira. It's sad it won't be rebuilt.

how about round twin towers, much more interesting than boxes!

(render by me)

no, seriously, the original twin towers were kind of ugly, and I think the new WTC complex will be awesome.

Stupid Idea to build Freedom Tower instead of Twin Towers. But history will decide.
