Space Within: The National September 11 Memorial & Museum

 

A Space Within at the Center for Architecture in New York, through September 14, is a public showcase of the memorial and museum, including the museum pavilion designed by Norwegian firm Snøhetta, that are now taking shape at the heart of the World Trade Center site.

September 11th, 2001, what had been one of the world’s most densely developed business districts became, for many, hallowed ground. Soon after, questions emerged. What comes next? How could one site serve the needs of victims’ families, survivors of the attacks, members of the surrounding communities, business interests, and visitors?

The answer required a clear separation of the sacred and the secular; a defined, eight-acre space, serving as a tribute, would be created within the larger development. A Space Within is a public showcase of the memorial and museum that are now taking shape at the heart of the World Trade Center site.

The exhibition is curated by Thomas Mellins and designed by Incorporated Architecture & Design.
