Virtual Tour Of The Chosen Design

In creating his design, Libeskind traced onto a map the paths that rescue workers and firefighters traveled to arrive to the World Trade Center site on September 11. He then incorporated these lines into his design. The paths are marked in a new public space near the intersection of Fulton and Greenwich streets called September 11 Plaza. The September 11 museum will open into this space. This image shows the center of September 11 Plaza, looking west towards the museum entrance, the memorial area and slurry walls. The path on the right side of the image reads "Engine 54."
