Pentagon Memorial Dedicated Today
The memorial to those who lost their lives at the Pentagon site seven years ago today will be dedicated this morning. Arch Daily had provided a photo gallery and details of the memorial. The design of the site was done by KBAS Studio.
Organized by a timeline based on the ages of these individuals, 184 Memorial Units are uniquely placed along Age Lines parallel with the trajectory of Flight 77– each marking a birth-year, ranging from 1998 to 1930. Highly articulate in its form and placement, the Memorial Unit is the heart of the project, as each Unit demarcates a special place dedicated to each individual. As such, directional orientation inherent to the cantilevered Unit provides specificity to whether an individual was aboard Flight 77 or in the Pentagon at the time of impact. Each individual’s name is engraved at the end of the cantilever, hovering above a pool of water that glows with light at night.
