Graceful SpireThis is a night view of the proposed Freedom Tower. The new design gracefully slopes into a spire rising 1,776 feet, echoing the Statue of Liberty. The tower would include 70 stories of office space and a 276-foot spire and would be topped by broadcast antennas.

The Original TowerThis is a sketch of Libeskind's original plan for the rebuilt World Trade Center site. For the new design, Childs succeeded in including a lattice structure filled with energy-generating windmills at the top of the building. He likened the suspension elements of the new design to the Brooklyn Bridge, with the bottom of the building "torqued or twisted."
