New WTC Architecture

The Lower Manhattan Development Corp. unveiled more proposed designs for the World Trade Center Site today, some of which features buildings taller than the previous WTC.

I can understand the reasoning for it ("We'll show them!"), but the danger of providing another high-profile target like The Tallest Building(s) In The World really weighs heavily on my mind. As it should on anyone who watched the planes crash into the original buildings.

That said, I do like some of these designs, especially United Architect's Blade Runner-esque one and THINK Team's off-beat double-helix Eiffel Towers.
