I'm still afraid it will..There's no way that a couple of those stripes in the blast wall lighten up the lobby that much..I think they'll need light turned on in there all day..White walls will help but not that much as it's shown on the render..

Pretty costly. Any idea up to how many psi's are the blast doors graded?

maybe the pit is for those proposing 1WTC as a twin set! ^_^
That was the past, that's what we are commemorating (excuse my English, is that correct?)
This is the present... I just love this project and so glad it's finally coming up! Can't wait to come to NY and visit it!!!!
Will there be an observation deck somewhere?

PLUS, if you look at the top of the diagram, there's an 8' section above the beacon, making it 1787'4" tall. (544.92m)

1787 is actually a much better number, when you think about it. 1776 was when we declared independence from a country that's now an ally. How the hell is that really relevant to this building? 1787, on the other hand, was the year the US Constitution was written. A living, active document, and is therefore much more relevant.

Fab design and fab building. In 1999 I had the privilege of going up Tower 2 of the Twin Towers to the observation deck. I can never remember for sure if that was Tower 1 or 2 but I think it was Tower 2 the one open to the public.

Hello guys!

While in the metro (french Tube) this morning, I read an article coming from a free daily paper saying this:

Quote:
11 September

A replica of the Twin Towers

The association The French will never forget (TFWNF) will commemorate the 9/11 bombings by edifying a replica of the Twin Towers on the Droits de l'Homme square in Paris' 16th arrondissement. The first tower will be covered in names of the victims and the second one will display the support messages received worldwide. A laser lighting scheme coming from both towers are to illuminate the Eiffel Tower. According to some diplomat, quoted by Reuters, it will actually be 'the most important solidarity event in the world'.
I'll try to take some pictures...

On 11 September on the 'Esplanade du Trocadéro' in Paris

Me as well Hia-Leah JDM .

To give you an idea, here's a couple of drawings which they released:




The Twin Towers will be 25 meters tall. To open the ceremony, 70 kids will bring the biggest US & French flags in the World (designed especially on that occasion). There will be a free gig too...

For those understanding french a bit, here's an article ----> http://www.lecourrierdelarchitecte.com/article_2110

I'm looking forward to it .

That commemoration in France looks awesome, and as Americans we are very grateful for it. If anyone can get pictures of it we would be very happy to see them.

Dino, thanks for the video. Very nice. I, like many, have been very annoyed at how long this rebuild has taken. But once things get built we tend to forget about that very quickly and just enjoy it. I think that will be the case with the WTC.

Me and other Americans appreciate you, the people of France, reflecting on and remembering the tragedy that occured on 9/11. The US and France disagree on many issues, but this commemoration shows that there is still an underlying connection between the two countries.
