wtc memorial

Over the past years, I have been watching the construction of the Freedom Tower develop from the corner of my eye as I head to the PATH train at Newport Pavonia in Jersey City. This weekend I joined some friends and went to visit the memorial. It was a brisk wintry, New Years Eve. Even though I have been lucky enough not to have lost anyone during the tragedy, sometimes i happen to look at a digital clock when it is 9:11am or pm, and automatically take a moment of silence. I love the memorial design of the 2 waterfalls, cascading into the footprints of the twin towers. The names are meaningfully arranged by towers, responders, coworkers, relationships. I look forward to returning in the summer to visit the survivor tree and sit for awhile among the 400 white oak trees that will be planted.

architectural seduction

“Emerging from the landscape like an uncovered stone, the luxury accommodations are revealed
in geometric cut-outs from the topography. the architecture is inserted into the natural faults
and fissures of the land, resulting in simple and elemental forms that aim to enhance and embrace
the site. as a living space, the project seeks to provide a direct connection between man and nature
by leaving many elements of the design raw and honest to its surrounding.”
