WTC Memorial

"In its powerful, yet simple articulation of the footprints of the Twin Towers, "Reflecting Absence" has made the voids left by the destruction the primary symbols of our loss. It is a memorial that expresses both the incalculable loss of life and its consoling renewal, a place where all of us come together to remember from generation to generation."

World Trade Center Site Memorial designers Michael Arad and Peter Walker presented the refined memorial design, Reflecting Absence, at a press conference at Federal Hall on Wednesday, January 14, 2004.
