I like the design by Libeskind very much.

Have you seen the new designs and is there one you like?

I like the Foster design.

However, one problem: all those designs, while they're interesting concepts, are too large in scale. There is simply not that much demand of office space.

I still find myself wishing they would rebuild to look exactly as it did before (with the structural flaws fixed of course). For me, that sends a stronger message than anything else.

YES! I see in the news tonight that the Libeskind design has been chosen. All right.

I sincerely wish I could appreciate the artistic beauty of Libeskind's design. I can certainly appreciate the clever touches, e.g. the 1776 foot spire, the lack of shadows on the morning of September 11, the revealed retaining wall. But I'm not so sure how ready lower Manhattan is for such a large deconstuctionist edifice. Let's face it, the styles down there are pretty much relegated to Miesian International (the shrouded Deutsche Bank building across the street, One Liberty Plaza and a couple others further afield), suburban office park slick (the hideously tacky World Financial Center) and a few thousand pre-1940's highrises that range from Beaux Arts to Gothic Revival to ultra Deco.

Maybe once it's built I'll get used to it (which is what lots of people said about WTC originally). I have seen other examples of Libeskind's work and I was less than impressed, unfortunately.
