A significant aspect of the Pavilion’s identity is formed around a large glazed atrium situated over the Museum’s Memorial Hall and near the center
of the Memorial Plaza.

if you notice all those small vertical steel beams on the northern part of the roof, it looks like they will build it exactly as the renderings show:

I have to disagree. Look at the 'stairway'. It stands up too high to fit the render exactly. It seems to be the same height as the white pillars on that side of the roof. In the render, it looks like that whole side slopes drastically.

I still think this stairway standing up on the roof is just for temporary access.

If you look at the pic in post 321, you see that the slope of the roof is quite steep.. although maybe a bit exaggerated on the renders.

Mayor Bloomberg Vague on Fate of World Trade Center Sphere
March 7, 2011 2:41pm


LOWER MANHATTAN — Mayor Michael Bloomberg dodged the question Monday of what should happen to the World Trade Center Sphere.

"We're working with the Port Authority with what to do with the globe," Bloomberg said at a press conference in Queens. "There's a whole bunch of people. Not my expertise."


Many 9/11 family members have called for the Fritz Koenig sculpture to return to the World Trade Center site. The sphere, which anchored the Trade Center plaza and was damaged in the attacks, now rests in Battery Park but must leave later this year because of construction.


Michael Burke, whose firefighter brother was killed in the attacks, recently started an online petition to save the sphere. It has already gathered nearly 3,000 signatures.

Sources have said the Port Authority planned to put the sphere in storage for several years and then place it in the new Liberty Park, just south of the World Trade Center. For Burke and other 9/11 family members, that option is unacceptable. They would like the sphere to be part of the 9/11 memorial, but current plans call for the memorial to be free of any 9/11 artifacts, such as the sphere.


Bloomberg, who chairs the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, pointed out Monday that conflict over the World Trade Center site was nothing new.

The site's many stakeholders often have different interests and desires, Bloomberg said. While family members were focused on remembering their loved ones, other people were more interested in telling the story of what happened on 9/11, while still others were focused on design, traffic flow or job creation, Bloomberg said.

"Virtually everything has been controversial," Bloomberg said. "I think we've come to some pretty good compromises ... Not everybody will be happy."

From the quarterly report:

1st Quarter 2011

Museum Design Complete (by NS11MM)
NS11MM will issue the final design documents necessary to construct the interior portion of the Museum. This design includes all elements necessary to begin construction of the Museum exhibits, and represents the final design element of the Memorial program.

Museum Construction Begins
While core and shell work is already well underway on the Museum, interior fit-out work will begin in the first quarter of 2011. This work will include the initial framing of interior partitions and MEP systems necessary to construct all rooms and exhibit areas.

Substantial Completion of South Fountain
In the 1st Quarter, workers will complete the installation of the final pieces of stone and metal weir, and begin preparations for the start-up and testing of the South Fountain in preparation for 9/11/11.

Complete Installation of Two Sides of the Bronze Nameplates in the North Fountain
Installation of the Bronze Nameplates and their supporting structures will begin in early 2011. These plates, which will record the names of the victims of 9/11/01 and 2/26/93, will be etched and backlit from within the parapet housing. A glycol system will also be installed to keep temperature of the metal regulated at all times. The Port Authority has been coordinating with the 9/11 Memorial Foundation, who is closely overseeing this project.

Installation of the Large Major Museum Artifacts in the Museum Area
This milestone represents the installation of additional large artifacts recovered after 9/11/01, including a FDNY Fire Engine, a NYPD Police Car and a taxicab. These artifacts follow the “Last Column” and “Vesey Street Staircase” (also known as the “Survivor’s Staircase”) which have already been placed within the Museum’s walls. Given their size, all of these artifacts must be placed before the Memorial Plaza is permanently closed given that they are too large to fit in the Museum’s freight elevators. The Memorial Foundation has now decided to wait until the end of the 2nd Quarter to
place these artifacts. This timing was made available by construction of a temporary loading opening in the Memorial Plaza deck that can be quickly closed in the 3rd Quarter to enable final Memorial Plaza finishes to be constructed in that area.

Begin Installation of Pavilion Curtain Wall
The glass and metal cladding, representing the “skin” of the Pavilion structure, will begin to be installed during this period. Once complete, it will allow interior finish work to begin in the Pavilion. (At the time of the October 2008 Assessment, the Port Authority did not anticipate or commit to completing curtain wall construction by 9/11/11.)

Substantially Complete Fit-Out of East Spot Network
Providing power to the South Fountain, this element represents the last major electrical piece necessary to begin final testing of the South Fountain in advance of 9/11/11.

2nd Quarter 2011

Start Pavilion Curtain Wall
The Pavilion will be the main entrance to the 9/11 Museum. This original October 2008 assessment milestone is for beginning the installation of the curtain wall of the Pavilion structure. This ornate system of steel and glass will form the “skin” of the atrium, the area that houses the Tridents. Acceleration of the Memorial Plaza area and early construction of the pavilion steel will enable this milestone to be started in the 1st Quarter of 2011.

Complete Pavilion Core and Shell
Because of careful planning and execution, the core and shell of the Pavilion will be complete in the second quarter of 2011. This work will include the concrete, steel, exterior paneling and curtain wall installation. Reaching this milestone is significant in that it surpasses the Port Authority’s original commitment for 9/11/11 to provide completed steel only. Once this work is complete, interior fit out construction of the Pavilion will begin.

Begin Phase 4 of Plaza Construction
This final phase of plaza construction will be the last major are required to be complete for the Port Authority’s 9/11/11 commitments. Totaling approximately 27,000 SF, this phase had to be delayed to enable the accelerated completion of the Museum Pavilion’s steel erection and curtain wall installation. When finished, the portion of the Memorial Plaza committed to be open on 9/11/11 will be complete – an area totaling over 144,000 SF.

Complete Bronze Nameplate Installation in North Fountain
By the end of the second quarter, installation on all four sides of the North Fountain will be complete. These plates, which will record the names of the victims of 9/11/01 and 2/26/93, will be etched and backlit from within the parapet housing. A glycol system will also be installed to keep temperature of the metal regulated at all times. The Port Authority has been coordinating with the 9/11 Memorial Foundation, who is closely overseeing this project.

Test South Fountain
Following the successful testing of the North Fountain in the 4th Quarter of 2010, testing of the South Fountain will occur in the 2nd Quarter of 2011. Because of the successful efforts of the team on the North Fountain, work on the South Fountain is expected to progress more quickly. Successfully testing the South Fountain will ensure the Port Authority’s commitment of having both fountains operational by 9/11/11.

Complete West Vent Structure Cladding
The West Vent Structures provide ventilation to the below- grade Museum space. In the 2nd Quarter, the cladding system will be installed on both buildings. The system consists of anchors, steel beams and a wire like mesh that will wrap the exterior the structures.

Notice that the West Vent Structure and the façade of the Museum is slightly different than what is shown in this model.
