WTC Architects' Proposals

World Trade Center/Ground Zero
This is what the former World Trade Center site, "Ground Zero," looked like in January, 2003.
World Financial Center
Across the street from Ground Zero is the World Financial Center. Although the World Financial Center was damaged during the tragedies, it has been cleaned, renovated, and restored.
Many individuals and companies submitted proposals outlining new ideas for
the former World Trade Center site. This competition was narrowed down to 6 design
firms. The designs submitted by these companies were displayed in
the lobby of the World Financial Center.
