<nettime> Other ideas for the WTC


Both The New Yorker and Architecture Week had articles on the plans by Gustavo Bonevardi and John Bennett, two NY architects, to have a virtual re-creation of the towers.  They are working with two artists who came up with the idea independently: Paul Myoda and Julian LaVerdiere of Creative Time. They plan to make use of laser generators or searchlights, mounted on barges in the river.

For a picture of how it might look:
