September 11 Memorial Site
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center.

Reflecting Absence.

Financial District, New York City.

The Memorial is a national tribute of remembrance and honor to the 2,983 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The two memorial fountains at the memorial site sit in the spots where the two towers stood. They are each surrounded by granite borders that contain the names of all those who were killed in both terror attacks at the site. Together they make up the nation’s largest manmade waterfalls, and are at the heart of the design of the memorial, called Reflecting Absence. It was designed by Israeli-American architect Michael Arad of Handel Architects, a New York- and San Francisco-based firm.
