Paul life is a constant struggle for continuty ,you should keep this in mind,i don't know even it may seems at the first , a local American issue,But many people may consider it as a globle international concern,it was an evil crime against humanity as you know.
maybe if the designers split the future project into two sections,two spaces within one aesthetic unity,were the ground level should be solely reflect a tribute to the innocent victims,with no mundane physical barriers,no curtain walls,maybe by using a giant water mirror to reflect the transparency of the human souls that once perished here,with planting some red anemone flowers distributed along s random sacred patches of the space(anemone were the the symbol of the blood of Adonis in Pheonician Mythology,this Canaanaite God had always reflected the resurrection of life in the nature,the victory of life over the death...),the underground level should be descended by a gradual penetration to lower level ,to a giant sacred negative space with a gigantic sense of proportion,as sub zero sacred ground ,an architectural womb that holds the memory of the victims...
the rest of the building should be erected by using giant monumental columns that raise the whole building,"continuity" of life is a must,this should be a subliminal message to the terrorist,not a rough naive direct message.....,i don't know,..ok don't mind my own dreams,i was just dreaming with a loud voice......
