NYC’s National Memorial Fountains Reinforced with Owens Corning’s Advantex® Corrosion Resistant Glass
The recent unveiling of the National 911 Memorial Fountains at New York City’s World Trade Center,marked the tenth anniversary of those who lost their lives in one of the nation’s worst tragedies.
In 2005 the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade center Foundation
was set-up to oversee construction of a Memorial on the site of the twin towers. The Foundation opened a worldwide design competition and received more than 5,000
submissions from 63 countries.
The winning design, entitled “Reflecting Absence,” is an eight-acre plaza with 400 trees
that surround two gigantic recessed reflected pools. The challenge was to keep 600,000
gallons of water in each pool flowing and sparking throughout the year.
