Beautiful Digital Rendering of the New 9/11 Memorial and World Trade Center

This architectural animation reveals the finished 9/11 Memorial and Musuem, as well as the new World Trade Center, shining in golden afternoon light. The aerial perspective flies over the Manhattan skyline and the five skyscrapers that will surround the memorial. Two reflecting pools fill the footprints of the Twin Towers, surrounded by a sustainable forest of trees grown within a 500-mile radius of the site. The names of people killed in the attacks in 2001 and 1993 will be stencil-cut into the bronze walls surrounding the pools, so that light will shine through at night.

    This is a wonderful project. I love how they used the space, and incorporated the water features as the twin towers...
