The NY Post reports that Daniel Libeskind's "win" to design the WTC site came as a result of a name–calling contest, architecture–style. And partly because of the Post. One of Libeskind's partners, Gary Hack, said that when the two final WTC redesign plans were announced, the Post and other papers referred to the Libeskind design as "The Pit." So Libeskind and and his crew referred to rival THINK plan as "The Skeleton," which Hack later credits with leading Governor Pataki to say, re: the THINK design, "There's no goddamn way I'm going to build those skeletons." Note to all: Architects may wear funky glasses, but they are fierce, yo, so watch yo' back.
