I put their feedback form to good use. Hope they don't steal any of my ideas, remember you guys heard it here first
"I am a member of the camp that believe the WTC should be rebuilt as a symbol of American determination and spirit, and to close the wound to the city's skyline, which is sadly lacking since that horrible day in September.
While I voted "Yes" to this design, there are many elements which seem excessive, not practical, or for lack of a better word: silly.
The structures rendered here are indeed impressive. What troubles me is the that fact that many of it's windows will be looking out at another one of the towers not the lovely NYC skyline. Perhaps the number of towers should be limited to 3; two main towers surrounding a central transportation spire. This can be just as grand and symbolic. Especially if the sentral spire rises to a height taller than any other building, with an observation deck and perhaps capped by a magestic marble sculpture of an angel bearing the American flag, standing tall over NYC and America as both a guardian and a symbol.
this reduced form of the proposal will not have as much space to lease out, something the current models have in an excessive amount which may make the building difficult to fill.
the pyramid atop the building really seems out of place with the otherwise smooth structure. The sharp angles contrast too much with the cylindrival nature of the rest of the building and detract from its aesthetic charms. Forget the pyramid, it simply does not work in this regard.
The memorial park plan is rather ingenious and the public should greatly appreciate its tranquil beauty and solemn nature. a sea of green life that is eternal and everlasting.
Finally ideas such as "sound waves to deflect flying objects" are pure lunacy. This is impracticale, likely expensive, and what is to prevent it from being mis-used? a sonic cannon could cause a lot of damage, if it can ever be made into a practical device. Forget about sonic cannons, stealth skin, and anything else out of a science fiction novel. concentrate on building something grand, beautiful, practical, and affordable."
Sometimes its good to voice your opinion. Hope I don't piss the architect off by being so critical.
