Limited Capacity seats available

How do you design a museum on an iconic site that pays homage to a tragic event, while respecting the feelings and memories of survivors, family members, and residents? In this session, we'll revisit the emotionally charged rebuilding at Ground Zero of the 9/11 tragedy.

Join us to explore the issues and processes surrounding design of the 9/11 Memorial Museum:

• Legal requirements to preserve public access to many of the surviving in-situ artifacts of the World Trade Center site, including the foundations of the Twin Towers, the slurry wall, and the "survivors' stairs"
• Means of integrating exhibit content and narrative into architectural form
• Collaboration with family members, survivors, preservationists, community residents, scholars, and curators
• The Section 106 Process for accessing and preserving historic resources

By examining this case study, you'll gain insights into how design and architecture can help resolve conflict, appease stakeholders, and bring peace to a community.
