Re: WTC question
Is any architectural project ever "all said and done?"
For example, look at the 'development' of Independence Mall in Philadelphia. The mid-1940's to the mid-1960's is when this area was erased of what was there, and newly designed as a 'national park.' In the 1990s, the design of this park was deemed unsuccessful, if not outright bad. Since 1998, this area is under reconstruction. From my perspective, this ongoing metabolic (i.e., creative/destructive) pattern is a completely apt representation of what the USA is (design wise, at least) all about.

[Rita Novel idea] for real
"In a Theater, Seeking Insights on Urban Planning"
Obviously, they don't know Le Corbusier is really staying at Cape May Point and busy writing "Promenade Architecturale" for the Horace Trumbauer Architecture Fan Club Convention.
Anyway, Happy Birthday Luis Buñuel and Happy Deathday Andy Warhol. They're still in Philadelphia since attending St. Catherine de Ricci's, Louis I. Kahn's and Albert C. Barnes' "The Bilocating Barnes Foundation" as presented on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway 13 February 2005. Besides, who can resist being around Dalí these daze?
Does anyone still remember "Acropolis" as presented early 1999 within schizophrenia + architectures? Well, it turns out that "Acropolis" (a group of experimental architectures poised on a hill) fits near perfectly on the future site of the Barnes Foundation along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Eutropia is presently getting a real kick out of reminding everyone that she is a Syrian!
