This had to be posted here. The Ground Zero memorial. Simple. Tastefully done, yet not in your face.

proposed redesign of the Pontiac Silverdome, which is a few miles east of where I live:




...it's currently an enclosed 81,000-seat stadium with three tiers of seats and an air-supported roof. this redesign would have a 30k capacity soccer setup using what is now the upper tier of seats with a field on what would be the roof of the lower levels, which would be split between a 20k seat sports arena and a 20k seat amphitheater-type venue.
