New York decides

I don’t want to gush but I’m really thrilled for NYC (and for the rest of us emotional New Yorkers) that the City settled on Libeskind’s replacement for the Twin Towers. A perfectly measured memorial to the lost as well as a thrilling and contemporary reworking of the skyscraper myth for the 21st Century. Brilliant. I want to be in the long queue to ride the lift to the viewing deck on opening day. Thanks to Demos for the link to this visualisation from the NY Times.
