The World Trade Center reconstruction and memorial site. The plan for the site, by architect Daniel Libeskind, will be a spiral of 4 new towers around an eight acre 9/11 Memorial Park consisting of 2 pools set in the footprints of where the original Twin Towers used to stand.  Each pool then descends into a central void. The names of the 2,983 victims who died on 9/11 are inscribed in the parapets surrounding the pools. The 9/11 Memorial opened on the 10th anniversary of the 2001 attack on New York. Construction continues on the new buildings surrounding the memorial.
