Yep, and it's as spectacular as the south pool was.

This one is for Kanto. Still think it's a toilet? And we still haven't seen the center void lit or the Name Plaques yet.

That's almost too beautiful for words.

I know the center void has lights, but from this angle, it looks cool being a black void.

I am curious about the noise the voids will cause, and how the noise will efect one when walking on the memorial and reflect what happened there. Libeskind's idea, with the waterfalls was, to reduce surrounding noises to be able to reflect more about what actually happened. We'll see if his idea works out.

So far, i really like the voids, but i am not sure about some details and how everything will work out in the end. To date, i have a strong feeling that something is missing on the memorial plaza, but idk what. So, i let it be finished and make my final conclusion then.

Thanks for everyone who is contributing here.

It appears that new fences have been erected along the entire lengths of the west and north sides of the south pool, and the west side of the north pool. They might also be along the south sides of one or both pools (can't tell from the web cam). There is one row of trees between the fences and the pools. (For the most part, these are not part of the perimeter fence that separates the soon-to-be-opened part of the plaza from the construction areas.) Must be for crowd control.

I haven't been to this thread in a long time. And I have to say Kanto's words didn't become insalting, into he used the word toilet repeatedly. And then demanded people respect his opinion. It's like my mother would say, Opinions are like *******s everybody has one. I'm sure if he wrote what he said in, bold bright red color the mods would have been on top of his ass

Keeping the void dark as an umbra open for interpretation will ensure this is not a Disney attraction.

Possibly the greatest memorial I've ever seen.

Stunning.

Wow, after a week of holidays I still see here folks who write hatred filled messages to me. That's fascinating. I wonder why so many folks worship these two toilets as if they would be the best memorial that exists? After all, the memorial could have been so much better than them

Does it still shoot the light into the sky to illuminate where the towers once stood?

Would you care to elaborate on how exactly the memorial could have been "so much better" ? How would YOU have designed the memorial?
