World Trade Center Memorial

 Location: New York

All architecture seeks to communicate. Our highest objective is that the Memorial on this hallowed site communicate in unambiguous terms the full gravity and significance of what happened here, at the Pentagon, and in a Pennsylvania field. We started from a simple premise, phrased for all time by Lincoln. Then, as now and for all time, his words–which we paraphrase–ring true and apply to the tragedies of February 26, 1993 and September 11, 2001:

that these brave individuals who have suffered, the living and the dead, have hallowed this ground already far above our power to add or detract.
