911 Cenotaph
The lost souls of the 911 tragedy have no resting place.

Solution

The debris of 911 was carried bit by bit to Staten Island, and sorted in the millions of pieces in Fresh Kills Park. The souls of the lost of that tragedy were last on this earth in these fields of Fresh Kills Park. I propose to build them a proper burial home with this Cenotaph.


The structure is built with re-purposed shipping containers. They are fitted with a walking path that leads to the top and continuous planters. The inflated ring above the structure houses lens that focus the sun's light on a steam generator, that provides power to the beacon that glows all across New York, all night, on into eternity.
