A coworker brought this story to my attention concerning David Childs and his previous design for the new "Freedom Tower". Does this guy have a case, or is he just "playa hatin" or looking for attention? Pretty sticky subject in the field of Architecture. I don't know all the details of this case, but as a previous employee of a large corporate firm, I can see how someone like Childs would take something like this without thinking. I've seen it happen too many times in those big firms. I'm sure it's not exclusive to the big firms, but their environment seems to bring it out in its most blatant and uncaring form.
