Napa 9/11 Memorial Garden

Napa, California

This early model (or maquette) was made by Gordon to illustrate the concept for design approval by the project stakeholders.


The memorial is constructed with recovered beams from the World Trade Center and laminated glass panels with printed vinyl inner layers that lists the 2,997 names of those who lost their lives that day. Sited in a large landscaped plaza, the Memorial and surrounding garden are illuminated at night with an integrated LED lighting system, allowing visitors to experience the Memorial throughout the day and evening.


The memorial plaza has become a place for the community and visitors to engage in quiet contemplation and reflection. Described as both evocative and haunting, the Napa 9/11 Memorial continually inspires viewers to express the courage and compassion the world experienced in the aftermath of 9/11.
