Design After 9/11

The redesigned World Trade Center will make more efficient use of its Lower Manhattan space than the original site, according to master planner Daniel Libeskind.

Designed by Snøhetta and scheduled to open in 2012, the memorial pavilion houses the entrance to the memorial museum, which includes box beams salvaged from the towers.

Michael Arad and Peter Walker proposed a number of iterations for presenting the names of the victims of the 9/11 attacks—a process that culminated in a raised, bronze parapet featuring names arranged by the victims' locations in the towers.
