On May 2 the Yale School of Architecture will hold an open discussion with famed architect Frank Gehry, international designer Zaha Hadid and Alexander Garvin-chief planner for the Lower Manhattan redevelopment effort - about students’ proposed projects for the World Trade Center site.

When Gehry, Hadid and Garvin survey their advanced students’ projects, they will raise such fundamental issues as: “What are essential qualities of a memorial monument?” “What is an appropriate urban model to replace the skyscraper?” “What are some of the specific challenges of this particular site?”

Journalists will have an opportunity to interact with the architects.

The World Trade Center site is likely to hold the world’s attention for many years to come. The discussion about its future with master designers and the generation that follows in their footsteps is certain to raise many thought-provoking questions and arouse public discourse on profound issues.

The open discussion will take place at the Yale School of Architecture, 180 York Street, on Thursday, May 2 at 11:00 a.m.
