A NEW WORLD TRADE CENTER From January 16 to February 17 The gallery will feature A NEW WORLD TRADE CENTER: DESIGN PROPOSALS. The exhibition will feature sketches, renderings, and multi-media projects created by established and emerging architects, in response to the need to rebuild on the site of the World Trade Center and embrace the future of New York. As saddened and troubled as we all are about the events of September 11, we look to architects to create a better tomorrow. Suddenly, a much larger public understands the social, political, economic and symbolic role architecture plays in world society. With this in mind, Max Protetch and the staffs of Architecture and Architectural Record have co-curated a show that will feature proposals for a new World Trade Center. Participants hail from all over the world, and include Hans Hollein, Richard Rogers, and others who have built some of the major structures of our time, as well as emerging architects who are the talents of tomorrow. A NEW WORLD TRADE CENTER: DESIGN PROPOSALS will provide the first formal opportunity for these individuals to express the diversity of their responses to September 11. The possibilities for rebuilding are myriad, and the exhibition will serve as a forum for optimism, creating a place for all of us to share in the thought-processes of the most important figures in the field. In addition, the gallery will make its space available for panel discussions, seminars, and fundraisers held by appropriate charities. The gallery has a twenty-year history of exhibiting the works of the world’s most important architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, and Louis Sullivan, along with many of the key figures in contemporary architecture. The show will follow an exhibition of winning designs from the 49th Annual Architecture Magazine Progressive Architecture Awards, which runs from January 5 to January 12.
