Reflecting on 'Reflecting Absence'

Sept. 11, 2014

By Van Jensen

Georgia Tech architecture alumnus Michael Arad designed the 9/11 Memorial in remembrance of those killed in the attacks on September 11, 2001.

“Reflecting Absence” is a serene, public space for collective contemplation and remembrance. Two 30-feet deep reflecting pools create footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. The names of the 2,983 people whose lives were lost are etched across bronze panels surrounding the two pools.

The memorial was dedicated on the 10th anniversary of the attacks in September 2011.
