GAUDÍ DESIGN FOR WTC SITE

Two separate teams have launched bids to get an unbuilt design by Antoni Gaudí adopted as the chosen scheme for the World Trade Center site in New York. Both proponents - including a group of Catalan artists and Boston-based architect Paul Laffoley - claim the Art Nouveau masterpiece was originally drawn up in 1908 for the exact site where the twin towers were built in 1974.
