Some of the worst ideas I've ever seen.

Leave it to the pros, people.

I love the air defence system!
2002-11-30 12:39:33 PM  
#6 with the 'Tesla coil air defence', star of david & '911' emblazoned on each tower just cracks me up.
Were these things drawn in crayon on the short bus?

That is one of the most structurally unsound ideas EVER.

Someone should have made this a photoshop.

I thought only girls could be fugly. I stand corrected.

I think that's a pretty cool idea, actually.
2002-11-30 12:41:36 PM  
I say we shoot them all so they can't breed.

Just build a toilet on the site...

I like the "fountains of love" one, or whatever it's called. I laugh.

I guess the disclaimer 'SERIOUS PROPOSALS ONLY' was overlooked by many.
2002-11-30 12:43:20 PM  
Damn.. Beaten by three seconds..

I voted for the Bulls-eye. Was that wrong?
2002-11-30 12:45:09 PM  
I like number 16 the best. Number 8 is kind of mosque-like, no?

This one's cute..
2002-11-30 12:47:15 PM  
I guess this is why you have to go to school to be an architect........
2002-11-30 12:48:04 PM  

Seriously... I don't think number 16 could house a park area in the middle. It would depend on which direction the taller buildings were facing, as well as the reflectivity of the inner building faces. The park would probably only get a couple hours of sunlight a day.

A design like 24 with a park area in the middle would be badass. I like that the smaller building has a bigger footprint.

I have a novel idea for what the world towers should look like... here is the proposal:
2002-11-30 12:49:30 PM  
Tesla Coils farking rule.

What in zee f*ck?

At night, when everyone leaves work to go home, we could use this building to have a football, hockey or even gladiator games..
2002-11-30 12:50:28 PM  
Those would be some bigass Tesla coils... don't they cause brain tumors?

Because you know, only Jews died in the WTC!
2002-11-30 12:52:27 PM  
damn these people not wanting their images linked... well here is what the new world trade center ought to look like...

Man, I bet that took a long time to do!

I love it when Crackpot America allows us a free peek into their world.

Let's not waste time or money into building something fancy. It will only get knocked down again.

1) confuse them into thinking they are in Detroit
2) confuse them into thinking they already hit that building

Terrorists 2
Americans 1 (woo, we are finally on the board)

This one looks like some sort of British flag...
2002-11-30 12:53:33 PM  
These were done by a "special" class.

Structurally sound!
2002-11-30 12:55:18 PM  
gee does CNN even look at these before putting them up?
2002-11-30 12:55:18 PM  
I'm surprised nobody suggested the "middle finger" WTC towers.

Damn... I mean THIS looks like a flag...
2002-11-30 12:56:11 PM  

There might be an issue. #6 is telling me that only Jews were killed in the WTC whereas you are now saying Christians were killed there?

2002-11-30 12:56:34 PM  


Imagine the news footage of the arms falling off the building.
2002-11-30 12:57:16 PM  
Whoa.. We'll trip the terrorists out with LSD flashbacks making them think they're already with Ali Babbah or whatever..

"In a vast wooded garden, two very high, round towers will be erected. Their serigraphed glass facade will display varying colors over time. The recurring pattern will be a representation of the crucifixion scene; this one evokes the history of the site and the sole remnants of the former Twin Towers, namely the metallic cross left in place by New York's rescue workers."

--Frédéric Kuhn in Paris, France

America surrenders..

Nothing like turning in your 'serious proposal' for the WTC on a sheet of NOTEBOOK PAPER.

And? Is this supposed to make your unfinished homework look good?
2002-11-30 01:01:49 PM  
Out of every design I have seen (professional and moron alike), I think I liked two of them.

The middle finger one is my favorite.

Oh, and Sailboat, I think you made me blind.

In seriousness, I like the circular ones.

Was there no restriction on the amount of alcohol you could drink prior to taking crayon in hand? FADD (Farkers Against Drunk Designers) urges you this holiday season, if you must drink, don't drink and draw.
