Finally got through to NYT on the web and had a look at this article (registration required) and had a look at the two finalists. While I really like the idea of the Eifel tower like structures designed by “Think team”, it does seem like a poor use of space in an area so starved for office space. Really pretty, but maybe impractical. The other design by “Team Daniel Libeskind” has some really interesting shapes, and the idea of a procession down to ground zero seems like a fitting tribute to the attacks.

Check out the site. It has a really neat applet that goes through many of the designs so you can get a better idea of how they work in the space provided. Go have a look for yourself already.
