  The Phoenix
- Esko Dean, Jr., Taylorsville, Georgia

I wanted to design something that would get everyone's attention and be the beacon of hope that all of the United States and the World can look to for hope and inspiration. This new design is "The Phoenix" in which this building is in the shape of a star and shall be made as such to project red, white & blue lighting that radiates all of the City. It shall be the star that rises from burnt & charred rubble rising anew above the NY skyline. The view is looking straight down on top of the building. Please let me know how you like it. I'm not an architect, but am only a regular person who will never forget that pain caused by Sept. 11, 2001.
