National 9/11 Memorial was recently dedicated on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11/2001 when many people lost there lives during the attacks on the USA. The Memorial designed by PWP Landscape Architecture & Micheal Arad have not only created a powerful memorial where families and friends can come to grieve but also a city park that people can use everyday to sit under the trees and enjoy the New York skyline surrounding the site and watch the rebuilding of area with new towers. There are many design elements that required great thought, development and testing including the trees, waterfalls, name arrangement and these were developed by talented people to create the beautiful space we see today.

‘The rebuilding of both the memorial together with the surrounding buildings will give the American people a sense of rebirth from the terrible attacks of 9/11.’
