Got this from http://www.buildthetowers.org/ , not sure when the site was made...here is the info from their site:





If you are an artist, architect, or just creative, feel free to forward Build The Towers your design of the new World Trade Center or submit your impression of a memorial in honor of the victims.



The design of a memorial should offer space of the names those who were injured or lost their lives during the attacks on the World Trade Center.



The adress to send your designs is:



Twin Towers Building Project

North Hills Post Office Station

Post Office Box 19574

Raleigh, NC 27619

There isn't much point rebuilding it, the same thing would just occur again.. also ppl would be fearful of working in such a high risk building, the only reason ppl would consider rebuilding it is to maximise the land value by building many offices in such a small plot of land.

I think a simple memorial would be much better, but of course they will rebuild it because they are money hungry.

Rebuilding would be a good idea. Yes they would be targets if the same thing happened again. But other targets include the White House, the Pentagon, Camp David, etc. Would you rebuild those if they were destroyed?

Ok those a-holes who think everythings a target are completely stupid, I mean so what..rebuild them and make the design and construction "up-to-date", the only reason they fell was because the buildings are old and they were not using high grade steel that would withstand the temperatures from the fire from the plane crash.



This would go with the pentagon too, im mean the damn thing is made of wood, and are in the middle of upgrading the whole thing, but the part that fell was the part of the building that hasn't been updated.



Anyways, those others that say everything is a target are just helping the taliban and whoever in creating fear in everyone so we cant return to our normal lives. :p

not quite money hungry. you have seen the very sharp down spiral on the economy. people are afraid to buy, and most of all, alot of people don't have room for their offices. we need to make 4 sturdier towers with a memorial in the middle so people can see it when they are entering and remember. also, i doubt anyone will try this sort of act again, they have seen what has happened to afghanistan.

They should make the two towers bigger than the tallest building in the world which is in Malaysia, then add a wall around it for floor security and Canons on top :D
