Despite negative public sentiment surrounding the World Trade Center construction project, head architect Daniel Libeskind told the New York Times that he’s optimistic about the progress his team has made. Libeskind, of the eponymous firm, said that coordinating the numerous players in the project, including the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and private investors, has been the biggest impediment to the development’s progress. “It’s a constant challenge — democracy is never easy,” Libeskind said of the grappling factions. “My role is to bring consensus, and that doesn’t mean I get everything I want.” [NYT]
