Virtual Tour Of The Chosen Design


8. THE WEDGE OF LIGHT
Libeskind has designed this public space so that it has no shadows on September 11 of each year from 8:46 a.m., when the first tower collapsed, to 10:28 a.m., when the second fell. The Wedge of Light stretches along Fulton Street from St. Paul's churchyard to the entrance to the 9/11 museum. In this image, Church Street is in the foreground.
