energy Windturbines for the World Trade Center site

The 1,776-foot Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center site in New York will be topped by environmentally friendly wind turbines. Although the plans will not be unveiled until next week, the turbines would appear to be instead of the initially proposed "gardens in the sky". The design is a collaboration between Daniel Libeskind, whose plan won out in the redevelopment contest, and David Childs, the chief architect employed by Larry Silverstein who has the lease on the site.

Update: The design was indeed unveiled in a big press conference on 19th December in New York. The write up by Felix Salmon has the best pictures of the design I've seen, including the lattice work, and the wind turbines.
