i would just like to say that people shouldn't be afraid to build and inhabit thick, tall, office towers. given the two finalist proposals, the ones with symbolic tall structures that serve no practical purpose other than being a memorial, it is clear that people want to "heal the skyline" while at the same time back away from the idea of tall office towers.
there's nothing wrong with building massive towers again, but in lieu of the way the twin towers were destroyed, some adjustments should be made (if a tall building were to be made again)to give its future inhabitants comfort. 1) provide everyone with PARACHUTES and 2) install GUN BATTERIES on the top.
these measures would be for psychological comfort only, for there is no real defense against some of the worst weapons terrorists can use (atomic weaponry).
