Ground Zero's Next Chapter

Not long after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the late critic Ada Louise Huxtable addressed the questions swirling around the rebuilding of Ground Zero by writing, “If the usual scenario is followed, the debate will lead to a 'solution' in which principle is lost and an epic opportunity squandered.” Now that two of the largest projects in lower Manhattan are complete, what is the verdict? The Fulton Center, conceived in the wake of the tragedy, brings logic to a tangle of transit lines that converge nearby, under a dramatic daylit urban space. And all eyes have been on the design of One World Trade Center, which had the opportunity to fulfill a public desire for a meaningful landmark on that sensitive ground. In the following pages, we assess both of these enormously complex buildings.
