In pictures: World Trade Center plans
Two plans have now been short listed for the site of the World Trade Center, destroyed in the 11 September terror attacks.

One is by Daniel Libeskind, who designed Berlin's Jewish Museum, and the other by the international Think team, led by New York-based architects Rafael Vinoly and Frederic Schwartz.
