Rubble, empty escalators and fingers of steel point skyward, pleading for justice a memorial to the horrors of terror and intolerance surround this courtyard of sorrow, with brilliant superstructures and a carpet of green, cut only by wide walkways a quiet place, many benches, for reflection upon, death, courage, and meaning of life near these hallow grounds build a community taller, stronger, unified and more inspiring than the original let the architects of tomorrow’s reach - exceed their grasp
Vision Create beauty and inspiration out of the ashes... Let us unite to protect and reconstruct the surviving WTC facade, into a memorial where the world can kneel and remember Surround and contrast this international treasure with a skyline of modern brilliance It is our duty and vision for future generations: Dedicate the lives, dreams and resolution of September 11th, for a thousand years...
Mission Honor our fallen, protect history, and above all, healing World Trade Center; 2,835 killed Executives, employees, visitors, FDNY, Port Authority, NYPD and EMS Aviation Tribute; first victims of 9/11 Flight 93 Heroes 125 killed in Washington and support for the 9/11 Survivors The mission of the WORLD MEMORIAL is to honor the sacrifice of our fallen heroes; to serve as an educational facility disseminating information, promoting tolerance and truth among all nations; and finally, to design a lasting monument, to preserve for all generations that moment in time, September 11, 2001, which is forever seared into our collective memory.
Core Principles Exhibit the WTC Steel The only thing that survived the inferno The WTC skeleton image, burned into the minds of 5 billion people, transcended all cultures. This powerful image, known around the world, speaks of history, desperation and strength in every language.
Survivor’s Corner PARK - peaceful, solemn retreat MUSEUM - It boasts NYC & WTC in all it’s glory! bigger than a single day (9/11)... but for generations EDUCATION CENTER - promoting tolerance
Survivor’s Corner WTC FACES 3,000 crystals are placed in the WTC "Windows.” They symbolizing the faces of heroes; reflecting memories of happier times and paint a rainbow of hope. Every day will be unique with variations in seasons, weather and time.
Survivor’s Corner Give the Victims a Voice Throughout centuries, bells have been the universal voice for freedom, celebration and loss. Let's host in true Manhattan style the world's largest manual carillon – of unprecedented 82-bells. Each bell represents a nation that lost a citizen in the WTC tragedy.
HOPE The 19-foot polished-bronze sculpture rises out the Memorial Fountain on a 3-foot pedestal recycled from WTC materials. This centerpiece balances the starkness of the surviving steel wall; presenting “Hope” for future generations. Commissioned by international artist Robert Landry.
Survivor’s Corner Honor Roll Three thousand names are etched on two blue-tinted glass walls facing the steel symbol of WTC. A white canopy, modeled after an airfoil, floats over the hallowed ground to protect the Names, Museum entrance and guests from the elements. By incorporating the skyscraper glass element, hundreds of flowers and thirty rows of names are visible on both sides. As we descend into the 9-11 Museum, we continue to see the names (in reverse). Shadows of people touching the names and the 190' Survivors Corner intensify this experience.
Survivor’s Corner The Memorial Level elevates the southern footprint two levels (43 feet) above an immaculate national Park, dotted with large trees, benches and meandering walkways. In beauty and simplicity, 3,025 names are etched on blue-tinted glass. The retreat for 9-11 Families overlooks this tribute for their loved ones and a 190-foot signature piece of WTC beams that stood in defiance to this terrorist act. Behind the glass wall, we descend within this sacred footprint to the Visitors Center. With multimedia tributes and 50 exhibits planned, the Center celebrates the 400-year history of Manhattan, American Spirit, and the World Trade Center prior to that infamous morning of 11 September. The Sealed Ashes are presented in a cylindrical sanctuary room, focusing attention upward through a dome skylight to the Memorial Fountains above. Going one step further, the WORLD MEMORIAL also represents our journey post 9-11. Appealing to our youth, the Education Center invites awareness, tolerance and hope.
