    The winning plan for rebuilding the World Trade Center site was designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, who proposed a 1,776-foot-tall tower, symbolizing the year of American independence. The top floors will be filled with life-affirming indoor gardens. The plan will leave large portions of the 70-foot-deep Ground Zero pit open, exposing the concrete foundation walls that survived the towers' collapse.

    yeah, this is the actual design to be used to build the towers on (it looks like for new towers that spiral upwards to me instead of the original 2)
