September 11. A date that still holds a memory…
The memorial, designed by Peter Walker and Israeli-American architect Michael Arad, consists of a field of trees interrupted by the footprints of the twin towers. Pools of water fill the footprints, underneath which sits a memorial space whose walls bear the names of the victims.
Walker and Arad’s design was chosen as the winner of the World Trade Center Site Memorial Competition, the largest design competition of its kind in history.
California based firm PWP was responsible for the landscape architecture.
We also present some of the other proposed concepts for the memorial site which never came into existence.
