빛과 어둠, 그사이에 위치한 그라운드 제로, 도시로 부터 분리된. 911메모리얼 뮤지엄은 온전히 그 시간의 흔적들과 조각들을 자신의 품 속에서 가둔다. 현실과 과거를 연결하는 브릿지; 두개의 글래스 파빌리온은 이전 두개의 타워를 연상시키는 시퀀스 연출과 지하세계; 이전의 어둠에 대한 안전한 가이드로 방문자들을 인도한다. 잃어버린 3천여명의 생활이 담긴 공간 속 무어라 말할 수 없는 숙연함이 밀려온다.

Today marked the ceremonially opening of the National September 11 Memorial Museum. Set to officially open to the public next Wednesday (May 21), the subterranean museum has already made headlines for its emotional 70 foot decent to the bedrock of the World Trade Center Towers.
Prior to entering the museum’s interior, visitors must first walk past the footprints of the Twin Towers, commemorated by Handel Architects’ cascading granite voids, before entering a Snøhetta-designed stainless steel and glass pavilion that is the museum’s entrance.
As Snøhetta’s founding partner, Craig Dyker describes, the
pavilion’s main purpose is to serve as the “threshold between the
everyday life of the city and the uniquely spiritual quality of the

“Complementing the power and simplicity of the pools and the trees,
Snøhetta has designed a visually-accessible, unimposing, building which
is fully integrated into the Memorial site. With its low, horizontal
form and its uplifting geometry the Pavilion acts as a bridge between
two worlds – between the Memorial and the Museum, the above and below
ground, the light and dark, between collective and individual
“Certain characteristics of the Museum Pavilion seem reminiscent of the
original towers, while at other times these notions are only alluded to.
The alternating reflective treatment of the façade will mirror the
changing seasons, revealing the Pavilion’s differing qualities
throughout the year. Inclined, reflective and transparent surfaces
encourage people to walk up close, touch and gaze into the building.
Once inside, visitors look out through the Pavilion’s atrium to see
others peer in, and begin a physical and mental transition in the
journey from above to below ground.”
“Within the atrium stand two structural columns rescued from the original towers. Although removed from their former location and function, they mark the site with their own profound and aesthetic gesture.”
“The Pavilion’s light and airy materials allow daylight
into the Museum below grade, commemorating the Pavilion’s tenuous
relationship with the ground, equal parts weightless and hopeful.”
Exhibition space and a private “family room” for the victims of 9/11 are provided within the pavilion, along with ticketing information, an atrium, auditorium and other amenities. From here, visitors are welcomed to embark on their decent down a gentle procession towards the culmination of the Davis Brody Bond-designed memorial museum: the bedrock and two exhibitions in which honor the nearly 3,000 lives lost and the day of terror itself.
Stay tuned for more information and images from within the sunken museum’s interior.
