Architect Craig Dykers revealed his new plans for a smaller version of the World Trade Center Memorial yesterday. It looks beautiful and serene, but you probably won't want to be picnicking there. The Times' David Dunlap got a little freaked out during the unveiling: "From certain perspectives, it might also suggest an explosion, with random, irregular shapes that could be seen as flying shards. 'No such imagery was consciously intended by the architects,' Mr. Dykers said, though he added that the design is not meant to shy away from the 'dualities' inherent in the new trade center, which will be a place both of mourning and of hope."
