Abstract or Table of Contents
An elaborate memorial to preserve Flight 93's story will be unveiled in 2011, on the tenth anniversary of the attacks. The project itself, a fusion of landscape design and permanent structure, and the process of choosing a design to represent this day, are the subject of this thesis. Remembering the events of September 11, 2001 pose unprecedented challenges that can only be understood within the longer history of American monuments and commemorations.
