9-11 memorial model
I went down to Ground Zero last weekend, where the 9-11 memorial
is currently being built. The sense of emptiness is striking, but the
PATH train running under the site shows the resiliency for which New
York is known.
Interview with designer WTC Memorial Designer Michael Arad
Arad: "I don't want to be too literal about the interpretation of the
design. I think it should be something that is open to different readings,
so different people can bring their own understanding to the memorial.
But one idea that was important to me was reflecting the continued
absence in our lives brought upon by these deaths."
