New York NY | Completed 2011 | Architects: Michael Arad and Davis Brody Bond
The National September 11 Memorial is a sacred space of remembrance. The 200′ x 200′ voids mark the former footprints of the towers, recalling the terrible losses of September 11, 2001. Names displayed at the perimeter of both voids commemorate the victims of the 1993 and 2001 attacks. A forest of oak trees, planted in east west bands, symbolize rebirth and provide a significant ecosystem benefit to Lower Manhattan. Work completed with PWP Landscape Architecture.
