Interview with the artist
WTC and other buildings by the artist.
"World trade means world peace and consequently the World Trade Center buildings in New York […] had a bigger purpose than just to provide room for tenants. The World Trade Center is a living symbol of man’s dedication to world peace […] beyond the compelling need to make this a monument to worldpeace, the World Trade Center should, because of its importance, become a representation of man’s belief in humanity, his need for individual dignity, his beliefs in the cooperation of men, and through cooperation, his ability to find greatness."
