Celebrating Death – a post by Lebbeus Woods by Smart Home Development SRL

Whilst browsing around for inspiration I came across this article on Lebbeus Wood’s blog, about an exhibition in Hangar 17 at JFK Airport commemorating the 9/11 attacks by displaying objects and materials found at the World Trade Center site.

He raises a few brief but interesting questions about the point and use of a memorial, and makes a valuable statement: ‘But the important point here, I believe, is that memorials cannot any longer commemorate death and destruction in the name of noble causes, but must somehow affirm the ultimate value of human life, under whatever name it goes.’

The article and photographs of the exhibition are here.
