Take a look at the spectacular designs for rebuilding on the World Trade Center site. My favorites are the Daniel Libeskind (1776 feet tall) and United Architects (1620 feet tall) proposals. The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation's website features extensive slide shows of each proposal. Although rebuilding the WTC has to be commercially viable, the LMDC and Mayor Bloomberg must not forget that the buildings are also symbols of America. Call me sentimental, but Daniel Libeskind got it just right during his presentation when he declared, "A skyscraper rises above its predecessors, reasserting the pre-eminence of freedom and beauty, restoring the spiritual peak to the city, creating an icon that speaks of our vitality in the face of danger and our optimism in the aftermath of tragedy. Life victorious."
