Danial Libeskind was the original architect whose designs were selected back in 2002 for the new World Trade Center. Today the One World Trade Center looks a little different from the original designs and models. Both Libeskind and another architect David Childs are credited for the One World Trade Center project.
One World Trade Center has great meaning to all Americans. The main building, the Freedom Tower, stands are 1,776 feet tall. That alone has meaning.
