Daniel Liebeskind On His Ground Zero Vision

The Voice Of America interviews ground zero architect Daniel Liebeskind on his plans for the WTC Center site.

"I hope it will provide a very beautiful environment, a very moving environment and inspiring environment, whether you are just a commuter going to work and then coming back home at night, whether you are a family living in the neighborhood, or whether you are a visitor coming to the memorial site, [I hope] that it will be uplifting, that it will be inspiring, that it would be an eternal testament to the heroes of 9-11, and at the same time an affirmation of everything we believe in and everything that is the future of the world."
