Our entry for the memorial had for objective to create an evocative, culturally non-specific design in scale with its surroundings. It had seven components: 1. The Hug, a 500-foot long embrace; 2. the Tower’s Footprints; the Samarium, to commemorate the remains of unidentified victims; the Virtual Hall of Heroes and Victims; the Wall of Ninty-Two Nations; and the Wall of Light.
