Have you guys read about Freedom Tower yet? It's the tower to replace the World Trade Center.
Freedom Tower is to rise 70 floors and be topped by wind-harvesting turbines that designers predict will provide 20 percent of the building's energy.
The tower's height of 1,776 feet, symbolic for the year of American independence, includes a 276-foot spire.
The torqued tower -- its east and west sides twist as they rise -- and the spire are meant to echo the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.
The tower is to have a concrete core and be encased in a steel cable netting that will brace the building. Childs likened the cables to suspension bridge cables, such as those holding up the Brooklyn Bridge.
What are your thoughts on it?
