You have got to be kidding…
Out of seven, there are a couple that are okay. "World Square" (design a) at least is interesting looking. "Memory Foundations" (d) is elegant and pretty. But "New Horizons" (c) brings back the ugliness of the WTC x 10…and "Memorial Square" (g)? WHAT IS THAT? That design is the one that had Evan come bounding into my office going "You're not going to believe what they want to build at the WTC site." He tried to sketch it for me and I just couldn't believe him. Think 3-D tic-tac-toe. Think giant shiny waffles. Think absolutely the last thing I want to see either in or looking at Lower Manhattan.
Lest you think I am all negative, I am for "New York Garden" (b), a design that at least seems like it would organically blend in with all the great buildings of Manhattan. The buildings are meant to visually replace the towers, yet they take a visual cue from the Empire State building and look elegant and, well, more what I think of when I think of Manhattan. The details and gardens also remind me of various parts of the city (the fact that it's a NYC team might have something to do with that).
In any case, form your own opinions, please. And if you live in NY, please vote in surveys, send feedback, whatever. I just cannot face giant copper waffles in Lower Manhattan!!
