For Immediate Release:
The 7th Proposal, A Tribute to Humanity - A New Vision for
A New Unsolicited Proposal Submitted to LMDC
for the NYC World Trade Center Site - Every Acre Sacred, Every
Element a Memorial
Los Angeles, CA...The 7th Proposal, an innovative, unsolicited
design for the World Trade Center Complex, is being offered as
an alternative to the proposals recently submitted in New York
City. John Joseph Teressi, a visionary architectural designer
residing in Los Angeles, believes the entire World Trade Center
site should be a memorial and "an affirmation of the human
spirit's ability to rise, through tragedy, to a higher level.
At the same time, of course, the site must be economically feasible
and provide for office space and residential and commercial activities."
collaborated with a team of dedicated individuals to create the
7th Proposal, which can now be viewed at www.7thproposal.com.
The website features a 3-Dimensional animation of the proposed
commercial buildings and a memorial for those lost in the World
Trade Center tragedy on September 11, 2001. Jym Duane crafted
the 3-D animation and website. Christina Duane wrote and sings
the theme song, Sanctuary.
7th Proposal's World Trade Center site consists of: Victory
Plaza with three towers on a 7-story commercial and residential
triangular base; Freedom Plaza, an office/commercial complex;
Rally Center -ChildrenŐs Exposition and Creativity Center;
a Memorial Museum and Chapel of Wings, plus a new
Marriott Hotel. The Twin Towers' footprints become lakes,
connected by a Memorial Bridge, containing botanical gardens.
Above the lakes, stained-glass rings send rainbows of light over
the cascading water. Parkland includes a variety of flowers and
trees, an amphitheatre, and a Maze of Memories with a globe
fountain, surrounded by a bronze Ring of Names.
The 7th Proposal was conceived when Teressi read about
the public rejection of the six original proposals. He began to
envision a site which would simultaneously honor those lost and
provide an inspiration for future generations. "Buildings
sculpt space in very specific ways, and people resonate to that
fact much more than we realize. The 7th Proposal was created
to encourage human beings around the world to go beyond the expected
and to move into their imaginations," Teressi explains. "We
need the new buildings on the World Trade Center site to create
a positive, harmonious feeling at every turn."
