towers, are discrete upon entry. Granite pavers and the rhythmic hymn of cascading water lead visitors to the threshold of the south pool. Each void is framed by a bronze parapet inscribed with the names of the 2,983 victims of the attacks on 11 September 2001 and 23 February 1993. “A very powerful installation where light forms a strong


contrast to the despair of the dark void,” commented one judge on the final result. Collaborating closely with the manufacturer, over 1,500 feet of submersible LED luminaires, driven at 24 volts with an internal water cooling technology, are mounted beneath the waterfall at the base of each pool. The falling water dances in the light, creating a powerful reflection that


oscillates between celebration and sorrow. Inside the parapet, a series of narrow-profile 3500K


LED luminaires are tucked along the far seam and use a custom-designed reflector to evenly illuminate the stencil-cut names that wrap each void.
