Governor's Island Design Team Selected

West 8 (et al.) has been selected as the winning team in the competition to construct a vision for Governor's Island in New York Harbor. If you need to get familiar with the island, you can check out the Bird's Eye photos on Live.com or the competition entries.

It is hard to believe that in this energy-challenged environment, and with the mayor (supposedly) a strong voice for the greening of NY while creating jobs--that there are no plans for WINDMILLS!!!
Wouldn't such a structure harken back to the city's early history and harness the predictably stiff winds that will move us into a cleaner and more efficient future?
