WTC Cultural Center: Park, Slope!

The just-announced Snøhetta scheme for the new World Trade Center Cultural Center (to house the new International Freedom Center and Soho's Drawing Center) can be described in one easy word: sloping! Tour the five-story complex in glorious detail, after the jump.

Reports Newsday, "It uses a sloping incline rather than steps to lead visitors through exhibits. The complex will also have a rooftop garden that will allow visitors another view of the memorial site, said architect Craig Dykers."
