Kunstler On New WTC Designs
"PBS aired Ric Burns's three-hour post-script to his previously completed documentary on the history of New York City... One theme stood out: theTwin Towers were uniformly reviled as works of architecture per se... After watching the story it seems to me that the proposed re-design for the site by architect Daniel Liebeskind is perhaps even more horrible, more misconceived, more arrogant, and more foolish, and perhaps more evil than the original Twin Towers themselves. Liebeskind proposes a set of skewed, warped, tortured, and torqued glass boxes, offset by a decorative tower even taller than the two that fell down. The "monument" to the dead is nothing more than the excavated 'tub' of the original retaining walls of the foundation."
