The 9/11 WTC Tribute Museum opened in 2006 just across the street from Ground Zero and next door to the NYC Fire Department. It provided the only place to connect, reflect and hear first-hand stories from the tragic event. Its original location was at the former Liberty Deli where food and supplies were provided to rescue workers in the attack’s aftermath.
The challenge was to lift 9/11 stories in a meaningful yet not overly sentimental way. The iconic shape of the World Trade towers is used to signify these stories. The colourful and carefully arranged shapes create a memorable visual texture. The result is a cohesive set of visual materials that point a spotlight on 9/11 stories yet remain thoughtful of its tellers.
