In response to the post by Paul Dremann, I need to say several things.

1. The editors of Planetizen set a strict limit (wordcount) to my essay on the meaning of the World Trade Center one year after. It was intended as nothing more than a very general comment on how architecture and urbanism has failed to respond to forces within and without our society.

2. Yes, I have very clear ideas about how to rebuild the entire region around the World Trade Center. This was not the forum for it, however. I am in contact with prominent New Urbanists who will shortly be presenting proposals for reconstruction. Several groups around the world will be putting forth the idea of a living urban fabric that can regenate life on the human scale. This is precisely what existed there before the World Trade Center was built.
