National September 11 Memorial

Remembering 9/11

Two architects, two visions, and two memorials commemorate loss and foster healing.

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 endure as indelible visions of chaos, destruction, and unimaginable loss. About 2 billion people—one-third of the world’s population—watched the day’s tragedies as they unfolded live on television and online. Within 24 hours, another 2 billion learned of the succession of catastrophes, which were to be the most widely witnessed events in human history.

Call it projection mapping, pixel mapping, video mapping, or even architecturally registered mapping. It’s known by all those names and more. But the new media format that has been the toast of YouTube—and live audiences worldwide—has broken a major visual barrier and is poised to knock down more walls.
