G.L. Sussman - Site Specific Work

The New Jersey 9/11 Memorial Design Competition

A collaboration project designed with Richard S. Jacobs, architect.

The New Jersey 9/11 memorial creates a sanctuary for visitors to come to remember, honor, reflect or mourn the lives of those lost on September 11th, 2001. The site and design concept considers the open space and vast views of the Lower Basin Harbor and Morris Canal. The design endeavors to create a secluded place with sculptures integrated into the architecture depicting disbelief, sorrow, courage and resolve. The memorial is a protected environment which provides a unique visual and educational experience, full of grandeur, function and purpose.
