Design Plays Major Role In Pentagon Memorial

The Pentagon Memorial will be dedicated this morning in Washington, DC. This memorial is the first one of the three sites to have a memorial on the site of the accident.

Below are pictures of the memorial and descirptions of the site.

Elegant in its self-supporting form, the memorial unit is at once a glowing light pool, a cantilevered bench and a place for the permanent inscription of each victim's name.

The field of memorial units is arranged as a timeline of the victim's ages, from 3 to 71. The western edge of the site is defined with an "age wall" that grows an inch in height relative to the age represented by the rows of memorial units.
