How do you create a memorial that speaks to the victims families, but also to those who didn’t experience the event at all? How do you design a memorial that will carry on the significance of what happened to people 50 or 100 years from now? And how do you do all of that while also creating a functional public space in the heart of Lower Manhattan?
