New design for WTC site


It's better than the last design. Apparently the lower few floors are clad in 'impermeable and impregnable metal and concrete', or at least thats what the NY Times says. I wonder what permeable and pregnable metal is like...

I'm surprised the NYT did not comment favourably on the oblique angles of the structure. All the better to deflect the next batch of aircraft.

A couple of SAMs at the top, ad they are done.

Are they going to fly planes at it during the wind tunnel tests?

I can't wait until they remaster spiderman. "Now, the same film, but with the new WTC in the background"

Collectors Edition of course.
