- Warren Farr, Paducah, Kentucky
The site would consist of a Memorial Park containing— besides
memorial with pool and waterfalls— a multi-level museum building
with exhibit halls and civic space, the original footprints
planted with grass, and a park area with benches and trees.
East of this the world's tallest buildings, the Tri-Towers,
three triangular-based towers, would rise 119 stories (911
reversed). They would be interconnected at the top by skybridges,
doubling both as parts of the observation deck and as fire
escapes. If below a fire or explosion one would go down to
escape, if above the explosion one could go up and then down
an adjoining tower.
An optional spherical sculpture titled "World Without Walls,"
some two hundred feet in diameter, would rise from the summit
and, if large and brightly-lit enough, be visible from the
upper reaches of the Shawangunk Mountains, more than eighty
miles distant, as well as from the International Space Station.
