Organized by Max Protetch, the exhibit "A New World Trade Center: Design Proposals" is featured at the Max Protetch Gallery in New York City through February 16. Included here are five submissions included in the exhibit.

At left is "Floating Memorial/Folded Street" by Steven Holl, with Makram El-Kadi and Ziad Jameleddine.

Next is "Zero Zones" by Raimund Abraham which features three buildings situated so sunlight pierces slats in the buildings each day at the exact times the planes hit the WTC Towers.

At left is "Oblique WTC" by Lars Spuybroek of Nox Architects:
"Elevators form a highly complex structure of diagonals where at some platforms more than five or six different cores come together to form larger public areas."

Next is Protech's favorite by Zaha Hadid, which the architect describes as, "a city compressed into a large building."

Last is the submission of New York's Hariri & Hariri, featuring 11 towers.
