Inga Saffron Visits a Symbol of Resilience

The 9/11 Memorial in lower Manhattan is receiving a great deal of attention on the 15th anniversary of the catastrophe, but one of the planes, Flight 93, came down in a remote area of Pennsylvania, where the barriers to completing a memorial have if anything been more obdurate than in New York. Inga Saffron (LF ’12) visited the Flight 93 Memorial, designed by Paul and Milena Murdoch, and found the “composition has a simplicity and clarity, not to mention a serenity” that makes it a fitting vessel for memory and hope. Read her review in Metropolis, “Let the Landscape Speak.”
