Six New Teams of Architects Chosen to Submit WTC Redevelopment Plans

The BBC is one of the news agencies to report that The Port Authority has chosen six international teams of architects to submit plans for the redevelopment of Ground Zero. The agency held a new competition because the first set of plans it received were almost universally criticized as being either unimaginative or insufficiently respectful of the lost.

We think that the previous design contest was hampered by the requirement that the plans replace all of the 11 million square feet of office space as well as the retail space lost in the attack. But, we do not agree with some bereaved relatives that have suggested that the entire site should be given over to a memorial. Turning the entire 16 acre site into a memorial would send a terrible message to people who would consider future terrorist attacks on the United States.
