1. Oktober 2004 Architectural Record Book
The most highly publicized building renewal process in the world today-and the most significant survey of competing architecture designs since the international design competition for the Chicago Tribune Tower in 1922-is for the reconstruction of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. It has inspired a multitude of designs and has engaged architects on a global scale in the re-imagining of the vacant 16-acre site.Published in conjunction with Architectural Record, the most important architecture journal in the United States, Imagining Ground Zero documents not only the various competitions sponsored by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation but also the informal proposals sponsored by the New York Times, New York Magazine, and the exhibition at Max Protetch Gallery, as well as a selection from thousands of schemes submitted independently for the World Trade Center site and Memorial. Among the key figures in contemporary architecture whose work is featured here are Coop Himmelblau, Peter Eisenman, Norman Foster, Charles Gwathmey, Zaha Hadid, Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates, Steven Holl, Rem Koolhaas, Greg Lynn, Richard Meier, Eric Owen Moss, David Rockwell, Lindy Roy, Ben van Berkel and Caroline Bos, Rafael Vinoly, and many others. With its exhaustive approach to these myriad voices in the discourse surrounding the World Trade Center site, Imagining Ground Zero is destined to become the canonical reference for this unprecedented event in world architecture.

Spurred by grief, hope and pragmatism, architects, artists and others have envisioned myriad new looks for the site of America's greatest devastation. Imagining Ground Zero: Official and Unofficial Proposals for the World Trade Center Site compactly yet vividly documents more than 100 proposals that range from the utilitarian to the Utopian. Drawings and models by world-famous architects (including Tadao Ando, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaus and Bernard Tschumi) rub shoulders with work by obscure firms. The book opens with a capsule history of the World Trade Center and its neighborhood, a chart showing the various entities that have jurisdiction over the 16-acre site and a description of the design process as of Spring 2004. Proposals of finalists in the official juried competition are represented by clusters of photographs and succinct descriptions. The winning proposal for the memorial (Michael Arad and Peter Walker's "Reflecting Absence") and Daniel Libeskind's winning site plan are allotted more space, with brief summaries of the architects’ various revisions and major critiques by the architectural press. Imagining Ground Zero also offers a sampling of entries to contests sponsored by The New York Times Magazine, New York magazine and Max Protech (an art gallery), as well as submissions received by other outlets, including the professional journal Architectural Record. Included are proposals for the master plan, the memorial and a transportation hub, as well as a few designs intended primarily as political commentaries. Grouped together, the entries' similarities become especially noticeable (for example, towers that entwine or otherwise abut one another). Lucid, attractively designed and copiously illustrated with 252 color photographs, the book offers a concise visual history of the most extensive design competition of our times. However, the lack of an index of participating architects makes Imagining Ground Zero less useful as a reference book. —Cathy Curtis

5.0 von 5 Sternen Copiously illustrated in color, beautiful album 10. Juli 2005
Von Eugene Tenenbaum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Everything you need to see about the design proposals for the WTC site. It provides the visual aspect, that combined with "Up from Zero: Politics, Architecture, and the Rebuilding of New York" (ISBN: 1400060176), presents a comprehensive picture of who, what and when. Hundreds of illustrations showing also tech. details are beautifully printed in color on glossy paper on a very high level. They reveal brutally the shortcomings of proposals including the winning one and its evolution from the unrealistic wish that could not have been built at a reasonable cost (incl. the grim pit and gigantic free standing, enormously expensive spire for... coffee drinkers and directly in front of office tower windows) to its more feasible shape and surrounding changed (by others) so much that the overall plan stops resembling the winning proposal, as if the award was only a pretext to install the predetermined winner, and to have the actual planning done by others.

plans for Ground Zero & a Memorial.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Comprehensive Design Solutions 17. Oktober 2004
Von R. M. Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The architectural designs for the Ground Zero space were imaginative and inspiring. This book treats the various solutions comprehensively and respectfully. The solutions fell into 3 catagories, a memorial for the greatest American tragedy since Pearl Harbor, a huge transportation hub, and the rebuilding of office, retail and residential space. This book displays unofficial and unrequested designs to each or all solutions. A favorite was Hani Rashid and Lisa Anne Couture's skyscraper which reminds one of interlocking links of chain, and therefore conveys a feeling of security. The memorial should be at or near street level to maximize public viewing, so the ones that were many feet underground were not appealing.
