Many of these four dozen or so designs solicited by New York gallery owner Protetch may be fanciful rather than practical—from Acconci Studio's "building full of holes" ("preshot, pre-blown-out, preexploded") to Jakob + MacFarlane's "light and sensual" design of long, thin towers resembling fingers and symbolizing "peaceful aspiration"—but they bring a freedom of imagination whose need was surely demonstrated by the paucity of creativity shown in the half dozen designs for rebuilding the World Trade Center site that were unveiled recently.
