You are quite right ; what will a new WTC icon mean if the important issue shuldn't be new technologis new building methods , a rocket in the behinds of the stock market as now they finaly found out that "new technology Dot.Com" is not the same investing in new technology bringing new industrie and jobs.
We stopped building pyramides thousand of years ago why don't they stop confusing pyramides with pyramide companies.
What would be better than new methods that at the same time bring new technology, build in a way so you don't even need to be able to read, to "se" how this work. What's wrong with architecture are, that it focus on the display ,that you can show pictures that don't tell a clue about how to "get this" made from local resources, ---- This is the perfect time to interduce a new universal form language, based on materials you can find all over the world ; sheet material.
Sorry I didn't finish a slum villa in roof sheeting, sure this is very different than graveyard postmodernism style , but fact is, that any sheet material will form any building, ------ you can even replace slum with nice housing even using the same cheap materials as you se in slum towns.
