The two key elements of my Memorial design are water and light. Opposites, like Yin and Yang, they represent light and dark, hot and cold. Light is warm like the sun, water is cooling, soothing, reflective, it purifies. On the footprint of the South Tower (5) I envision a tiered dome-like structure, "The Circle of Life" made up of eleven concentric circular platforms rising thirty three feet from a surrounding pool of water. This powerful sculptural and spiritual space represents for me the purification and sanctification of those who passed on. My wish is that the souls of those who died on 9/11 will ascend to a higher realm.
