On Extra a few days ago, Donald Trump announced that plans for the Freedom Tower will be scrapped. He has fired the architect who came up with the concept. Trump now wants the towers rebuilt in their original form. What do you guys think about this?

Freedom Tower was a horrible idea.. and i didn't really like that design.

Looked like something out of a 1970's drawing when all the artists were still all hopped up on something.. :runaway:

Go Twin Towers!!!

I would like to see them go up as replicas of the origionals but with an improved safety added to make them more impervious to attacks.

i'd like to see replicas of the original twin towers go up, except taller (and with a huge american flag flying at the top). that'll send a message to the terrorists that they can sucker-punch us, and we still can withstand the pain.
exactly what the british goverment were planning with tower 42 in london on the verge of collapsing from an IRA bomb suckerpunch to the terroists.

IMO, the original towers weren't particularly attractive. Aside from their sheer mass and engineering significance, they didn't offer much to a skyline that already has two of the most beautiful buildings ever constructed.

I think the Freedom Tower sucked for the most part, but I would hope they'd be more tasteful than to REbuild two bland buildings just to pump up the American ego/hard-on.

Donald Trump fired an architect who doesn't work for him and is going to built buildings on a site that he doesn't control?

I'm just telling you what they said on Extra.
That pillar of journalistic integrity :)

No offense bigboyz, you're just the messenger. But you often get little better than gossip with Extra.

the only better idea i herd other than to replace the twin towers with a replica was to arange 5 towers into the shape of five fingers with the mille one much taller to give the effect of the US giving the finger to the terrorists!!

Well, if there's anyone on the planet with the audacity to do it, that's your guy...
