Sept. 11 Memorial to Be Redesigned
When a jury chose a Sept. 11 memorial design from more than 5,000 entries, the panel praised it for the “powerful, yet simple” use of reflecting pools to represent the destroyed World Trade Center. More than two years later, nothing is simple about the memorial, called “Reflecting Absence,” which was sent back for a redesign after contractors concluded that it could cost nearly $1 billion.
A builder appointed by Gov. George Pataki and Mayor Michael Bloomberg is due to present new options Thursday that would cut the memorial’s cost to $500 million. Officials hope to open the memorial in three years; preliminary construction that began in March has stopped.
There’s no reason that this memorial should be $1 billion. Absolutely none,” said Daniel Libeskind, the architect who created the master plan for the 16-acre site known as ground zero.

Put the f*cking BUILDINGS back up and be DONE with it.

    Hard to type with my nose, but I’ve got both hands in the air. They should already be up. Whatever happened to the great American spirit of thumbing the eye of evil?

    But, er, umm, ‘Fly, you have to understand the eye’s point of view. Evil is an equally valid, alternative life style.
