New Jersey 9/11 Memorial Cove

 Back to Projects list

Liberty State Park is composed of diverse and overlapping environments defined by New Jersey's Hudson River edge. Shielded from wind, daily park use, and the CRRNJ terminal, CDR Studio's design featured an incision in the ground that carves out a space of contemplation and remembrance. The memorial is not an icon in a field; it is a series of increasingly intimate spaces framed by a wall on axis with the World Trade Center site. The Community Cove is a memorial that remembers the past but reaches out to communities of the present. It seeks to redeem and foster an ongoing vision of collective healing that excludes no one. It celebrates the bond that was built by New Jersey communities in the wake of tragedy. This proposal aspires to give voice to both the New Jersey victims as well as the survivors of the 9/11 tragedy. The memorial addresses the memory of those lost while creating spaces for the communal dialogue of the living.
