With Nick Cameron, and Jose Chang
A proposal for the Pier A 9/11 competition in Hoboken, NJ. The Space of Reflection is both physically the space that the reflection of the World Trade Center Towers occupied in the waters of Hudson River, and a space to reflect on the events of 9/11/2001. The proposal is a memorial surface; a continuous plane that is folded to create a new void in the anamorphically distorted perspective view of the reflection of the Towers as viewed from Pier A. The Surface is one acre in area, exactly equal to one floor of each of the World Trade Center Towers. The World Trade Center Towers have come to symbolize the events of 9/11/2001 for the world. The space of their reflection was envisaged as being a memorial-the space for reflection.
