It looks like they may have listened to a little of what I said when it was first announced that New York’s upcoming Freedom Tower would be redesigned. It still doesn’t beat Trump’s plan, but at least they’re heading in the right direction.
That’s right, the Freedom Center plans have gone from ‘terribly uninspiring and pretty ugly’ to ‘eh, that’s not too bad.’
Another two or three of these mysterious security redesigns (I think that’s a euphemism for ‘deuglification’) and maybe we’ll have something impressive and awe-inspiring to build in lower Manhattan. Imagine that. . . .
