Remembering 9/11: Two Memorials, Two Visions

Read Time: 4 minutes
Twenty years have passed since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, and during that time more than 1200 memorials have been designed, built, and dedicated throughout the world. Two of the most well-known include the National 9/11 Memorial in New York and “Empty Sky” in New Jersey. SEGD revisits both sites and examines how these places of remembrance have the power to move us through experiential design.

C&G Partners Design “Comeback Season: Sports After 9/11” Exhibition

C&G Partners' “Comeback Season: Sports After 9/11” Exhibition Design

The emotion of the crowd was the inspiration C&G Partners (New York) drew on to design “Comeback Season: Sports After 9/11,” a new special exhibition at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, which opened on June 27. From the pause in play as the nation mourned in the aftermath of the attacks, national sports and its athletes went on to play a significant role in helping the country come together around a unifying message of collective hope and perseverance.

Keith Helmetag and Amy Siegel of C&G Partners have a long history with the World Trade Center, starting almost 30 years ago. Ironically, one of the first signs they designed for Lower Manhattan, just across the street from the site, survived the attacks of 9/11 and is now an artifact in the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. They’ve shared their story with us in a special Designers’ Diary.
