Reconstruction of the World Trade Center site has begun in earnest in Lower Manhattan, and many people are looking forward to see the transformation of the site move forward. While the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation was responsible for launching the largest design competition ever to elicit submissions for the World Trade Center Site Memorial, only recently have all of the submissions been put online for the general public. Here visitors can look at all of the 5201 submissions, which came from 63 nations and 49 U.S. states. Each submission may be viewed in its entirety, and visitors may also read more detailed information about the seven finalists. Additionally, there is detailed information about the winning entry, Reflecting Absence, which was submitted jointly by Michael Arad and Peter Walker. Finally, visitors may browse through a detailed archive of press releases related to the official competition.
