9/11 Memorial for Western Michigan University

  • Winner, 2003 Design Competition

This design was created to be a memorial for the 9/11 tragedy. The memorial was planned for a university setting in Western Michigan. Richard Light created a small scale of the Twin Towers using a garden with a low wall surrounding them. Plants and flowers are integrated with the towers and the wall to achieve a space for reflection and meditation.
