Part of the 16-acre World Trade Center complex under construction in Manhattan, the memorial is a public space centered around two reflecting pools that sit in the footprints of the original towers. 

The $500-million project was built as work was under way on the site's new towers, a situation that limited space for material staging and called for complex logistical maneuvers. The work also required maintaining pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow around the site. One of the judges said that this is "a spectacular monument that respectfully pays tribute to those who lost their lives at this site."
