Tschumi representing himself more then the french architects (all tendancies grouped)....
Well.... At least the'll have some modenature...:-):-):-)

Just for memories... We had in Paris a problem of the sort..(with less "hot" feelings of course)... The "tête" Défense the final point to the Defense district (sort of Manhattan mock-up in Paris).
The first contest included Corbs (ante WW II) the latest saw the "victory" of an "obscure" architectural teacher (retired)... Von Sprekensen, author of what is known today as the "Arche de la Défense" (the big stool thing ) ( Or how not to stop a perspective).
Between these two contests, quite a lot of other, so numerous, that I've lost count, with the usual first second and third prize... Then... Oblivition!

Now why do I have that obscure feeling that the WTC "re-construction" is on the same foggy path ...????
