It's funny you refer to the Sydney Opera House in this interesting debate. It was not an outright success in it's early days. The architect left the project, money ran out and it was unfinished for some time. It was the centre of vicious politics and debates a lot like this current one.
Only in it's latter years have people come to value it's miraculous and outstanding beauty as a completely unique and individual building which now graces the Sydney the skyline and surrounding harbour. It is really amazing considering it's whole roof is covered with ceramic looking interlocking tiles that would not look out place on a kitchen floor. I've stood next to it and just thought 'WOW'! Just stunning.
Bit like Ayers Rock or now known as Uluru, it has the same kind of mystery and powerful pull which just absorbs and dominates your whole attention.
Perhaps the best contribution towards the rebuild of the WTC could be something equally as awesome paying tribute to the lives that were lost and the future of next generations who will no doubt work and visit there.
