- Ted Heys, Elmhurst, New York
The centerpiece of my design is a square shrine, the size
of a tower footprint. The names will be etched on the black
granite mausoleum that encircles the shrine and holds the
remains of the victims.
Soaring above the mausoleum is the 22 story high sculpture
composed of 3042 life-sized, stainless steel human statues,
standing on each others shoulders. They form the lattice walls
of the shrine.
Inside this temple, 4 spiraling streams flow over 200 small
waterfalls to a central pool. This is the silent, sacred core
of the park.
Radiating from this central temple mound are many elements,
including 4 office towers and a grand, domed railway station
that together comprise a 16 acre memorial park.
