Proposal for the redevelopment of the World Trade Center Site submitted by Ed Loedy to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation on December 16, 2002
The design includes:
1) A common lobby through which one can enter cathedrals, temples, mosques, synagogues, and shrines representing all the worlds religions, symbolizing the hope that all religions can unite behind the principles of human understanding and mutual respect.
2) The building would include a terrorist defense system(TDS), which would enable authorizes to take control of aircraft illegally entering nearby airspace. The TDS would employ the latest technology to allow authorities to direct the aircraft to an appropriate landing zone.
3) On top of the new building would be a hologram of the American Flag representing the high ideals of the American's democratic society.
4) A laser beam would shine into the night sky, high above the tower, representing eternal hope of all people to live in freedom, dignity and peace.
