Memory, Authenticity, Scale, Emotion: A Discussion with the Architects of the National 9/11 Memorial Museum

April 29, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join the lead design architects of the 9/11 Memorial Museum for a free panel discussion on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 5:00pm at the New School. The discussion topic will be the design and building of the 9/11 Memorial Museum at the World Trade Center. No reservations are required.

Architects from Davis Brody Bond will discuss the technically challenging and emotional task of building a museum to present and preserve the history and memories of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and the challenges of translating the existing geometries of the site into a museum. A panel discussion with scholars will explore the four principles that guided the architects work: memory, authenticity, scale and emotion, and explore the larger global context of memorials and museums built or planned on the sites of traumatic events. A Q&A will follow.

Davis Brody Bond will be represented by partners Steven M. Davis, Carl F. Krebs and Mark Wagner, who have been involved with the project since its inception in 2004. The panel members will include Jonathan Bach, of the Global Studies Program at The New School, Marita Sturken, professor of Media, Culture and Communication at NYU and author of Tourists of History: Memory, Consumerism, and Kitsch in American Culture, and Brigitte Sion, co-organizer of the Transdisciplinary Project “The Politics of Memory in Global Context” at Columbia University’s Committee on Global Thought.
