The Viewing Wall at Ground Zero

September 10, 2002 – December 31, 2003

The Skyscraper Museum commemorated the anniversary of 9/11 on September 10, 2002 by erecting a Viewing Wall at Ground Zero. This would be the first of two walls. The second wall was completed in September 2003. The design of each wall consisted of a screen-like grid of galvanized steel, that allowed visitors to see into the Trade Center site as well as carry a series of large fiberglass panels that featured information on the buildings and re-buildings, the history of lower manhattan. Special alcoves of recessed bays contained panels with all the names of the victims of September 11, 2001.
