Freedom Tower designs just drafts, says LMDC.With one week to go before Gov. Pataki's deadline for a design for the Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center, the leader of a group dedicated to rebuilding Lower Manhattan Lower Manhattan is the southernmost part of the island of Manhattan, the main island and center of business and government of the City of New York. Lower Manhattan is generally defined as the area delineated on the north by Chambers Street, on the west by the Hudson River (North hinted last week that the eight finalist designs are merely drafts.
"There's probably a high chance that the ultimately selected memorial will be different from any that we see out there today," Kevin KEVIN Keepers of the Eternal Vigilance of the Islamic Nation (fictional, from White Teeth by Zadie Smith) M. Rampe n. 1. (Bot.) The cuckoopint. , chairman of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, said at a business breakfast.
The 13-member jury selected to pick a winning design is not on a timetable, but Rampe has previously said he expects them to pick a winning design by the end of the year. It is unclear if the latest developments will affect Rampe's general expectations.
Daniel Libeskind Daniel Libeskind, (born May 12, 1946 in Łódź, Poland) is a Polish-born Jewish American architect, who has designed many prominent and celebrated buildings, including the Jewish Museum in Berlin, Germany, the Denver Art Museum in the United States, the Imperial War Museum , whose design for the Freedom Tower was approved earlier this year by the Port Authority, declined to comment on whether he favored any of the designs, saying that "there's a distinguished jury that has gone through thousands of entries.
"I put my full trust in the jury to make a decision that's right for the site," Libeskind said in an interview with Real Estate Weekly earlier this week.
Rampe also announced that a group called New York New York, state, United States

The group released a statement Monday saying the designs did not represent an adequate remembrance of the World Trade Center itself. "The overwhelming sense of the design community participating in the New York New Visions Memorial / Design Review Committee ... is that the memorial plans presented to the public last week are lacking in emotion and variety," the statement read. "They are focused upon the tragic losses of the individuals but do not express the import of the loss of the World Trade Center to New Yorkers, Americans, and the world."
Several family members and colleagues of emergency services emergency services Emergency care '…services …necessary to prevent death or serious impairment of health and, because of the danger to life or health, require the use of the most accessible hospital available and equipped to furnish those services' personnel lost in the attacks also have criticized the designs for not grouping together the names of the lost firefighters, police officers and paramedics killed in the attacks. However, at least one design released last month groups their names together.
Some family members of uniformed personnel who died on Sept. 11 have threatened to remove their loved ones' names from the memorial if they were not listed with their fallen colleagues. Meanwhile, New Visions spokesman Rick Bell said the coalition will soon release a more detailed analysis of the memorials.
"We'll be getting together a more comprehensive evaluation toward the middle or end of (this week)," he said last Thursday.
