The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation is seeking "risk-taking" architects to design the cultural buildings for the World Trade Center site. Writes David Dunlap,
Judging from the turnout at an information session yesterday, the corporation will not be disappointed. Among the architects who sent representatives to learn more about the cultural projects ? which is not to say they will necessarily bid on them ? were Arquitectonica, Santiago Calatrava, Diller & Scofidio, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas, Enrique Norten, Bernard Tschumi and Rafael Viñoly.Awright?A-list architect throwdown! Popcorn warming in the microwave as we type these words!
