glad to see Sir Richard Rogers staking a claim in the heart of downtown NYC! The WTC site is going to be such an evolving and dynamic construction arena for the next 4 years or so, it's almost worth moving over to see it....

I know familiarity will follow and after some years this will be just as accepted as New York.....The generation that lived with the original just has to live with that.
Half a world away I visited it and saw it as it was, then as a hole in the ground and hope again to return and see the completed project. The memorials may hold more meaning than the buildings surrounding it though ?
Good post. I agree.

that's not true, i assure you.. maybe in some countries, but not in all the world. Here in Argentina was so many people who condemned that episode, and the same for a lot of people in South America. That's a fact!.

This building is going to add so much to lower Manhattan when complete. I just love it.
