The touching September 11 Memorial is made up of 2 quadrangular tubs, located in the exact position where the Twin Towers were. Inside them, water flows continuously towards a square central hole. All around, on the marble balusters, the names of the victims, both from September 11th, and from the first attack, which took place in 1993, through a car bomb placed in the underground car park, which caused 6 deaths. Flowers are placed near the names, on the occasion of birthdays. Trees have been planted all around, to isolate the area from traffic and city bustle. The general silence, isolation, and the constant rushing of water help create an evocative and moving atmosphere. The work, deliberately minimal, is called “The Reflecting Absence”, made by the architect Michael Arad, it was chosen from more than 5000 presented projects
