Restoration and its remedy

   Life has a way of taking
   over even the most un-
   promising places in New
   York, the critic consoles
   us, in concluding his ap-
   posite appraisal of the
   architecture at One World
   Trade Center. And this is
   true; we can wring some
   triumph for vitality, al-
   most anywhere. But why is
   this always a resistance,
   and a necessary defiance
   of the unyielding grid?

   One World Trade Center was
   bad enough; yet, it's back.
