9|11 Reflecting Absence


On this day thirteen years ago tragedy struck America. The reverberations of which have been felt across the globe ever since. Today we remember 9|11 through images of a beautifully executed design of  an open space memorial by Architect Michael Arad, and Landscape Architect Peter Walker that serves as a space for remembrance.

The Memorial commemorates the victims of the attacks of September 11, 2001, at the World Trade Center, Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the Pentagon, and the World Trade Center attack of February 26, 1993. Two fountain-lined voids, on the locations of the destroyed twin towers, and a surrounding forest of oak trees form the core of the rebuilt World Trade Center in New York City and provide a place for contemplation and remembrance within this revitalized urban center.” – Source: ASLA.org
