Bradley Campbell and Maatthias Neumann, Brooklyn, NY
Water and light symbolize life, rejuvenation and rebirth. By using water and light as key elements of the
design and by bringing people directly to the site of the attacks, we hope that visitors will remember not
only the loss of life but also the sanctity of life that we live each day. These elements point to the passing of time, and speak to us of emotion and transcendence. The site is designed to provide a place in this
city and within each of us where we may find peace in experiencing the challenging, often painful cycle of death, grief, rebirth and life.
