Pouvez-vous nous décrire l’agencement du Mémorial et l’idée fondatrice des architectes Micheal Arad et Peter Walker qui l’ont bâti ? En effet, pour bien comprendre la portée de ce projet, il faut comprendre la disposition spatiale du mémorial. À Ground Zero, deux fontaines de 4000 mètres carré chacune - les reflecting pools - sont installées à l’exact emplacement des Twin Towers disparues.
Original Michael Arad design board submitted in the World Trade Center Memorial Design competition Michael Arad is an Israeli-American architect who is best known for being the designer of the World Trade Center Memorial . He won the competition to design the memorial in 2004.
The nearly 3,000 names of the men, women, and children killed in the attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 will be inscribed on bronze parapets surrounding the twin Memorial pools. Memorial designer Michael Arad explains that the design concept “allows us to place the names of those who died that day next to each other in a meaningful way, marking the names of family and friends together, as they had lived and died." As described below, names will be arranged within three levels of “meaningful adjacencies” that reflect where victims were, their affiliations (e.g., companies or groups attending a conference together), and their personal relationships. First, names will be inscribed within nine major groupings on the Memorial.
In late October, 2009, I received an e-mail from Jake Barton from Local Projects , titled plainly ‘Potential Freelance Job’. I read the e-mail, and responded with a reply in two parts: First, I would love to work on the project. Second, I wasn’t sure that it could be done. The project was to design an algorithm for placement of names on the 9/11 memorial in New York City.
