The two square pools
Called Reflecting Absence, the two huge square pools with the names of thousands of people,that lost their lives on 11 September 2001. Surround by a square, in which have been planted over 400 white oaks, the two square pools of the 9/11 Memorial occupy exactly the space of the foundations of the unlucky Twin Towers. A waterfall goes down in the border of the fountains for a height of 9 meters falls over the empty central square. The scroll of the water is highly symbolic, starts with thousands of rivulets that flow together, and finishes in a slow trip toward the abyss.
Designed by Micheal Arad and Peter Walker, the tubs are a touching and strong visual impact work.
