The new World Trade Center

I have to admit I'm a little disappointed with the final selection for the World Trade Center rebuild. I am glad that it will bring the title of World's Tallest Building back to New York (1,776 feet) and I'm sure it will look very nice, but there just isn't anything "iconic" about it. Aside from the history behind the site, I don't think there is anything architecturally special about the design.

The far more intriguing design was the twin scaffolding concept. Even if you knew nothing about September 11th, you can't help but know that there is something significant about these structures. It's a shame we'll never get to see them.
