Description

The memorial is located at the World Trade Center site, the former location of the Twin Towers that were destroyed during the September 11 attacks. In 2003, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation launched the World Trade Center Site Memorial Competition, an international competition to design a memorial at the World Trade Center site to commemorate the lives lost on 9/11. It consists of a field of trees interrupted by two large, recessed pools, the footprints of the Twin Towers. The deciduous trees (swamp white oaks) are arranged in rows and form informal clusters, clearings and groves.The names of the victims of the attacks are inscribed on the parapets surrounding the waterfalls in an arrangement of “meaningful adjacencies”.
