Chazen prepared a design for the recently-constructed Perrella Sculpture Garden and World Trade Center Memorial at Fulton Montgomery College. The new sculpture garden weaves campus visitors in and out of intimate seating plazas through an array of sculptural elements and a custom fountain with views toward the scenic countryside. The visitor’s eye is ultimately guided up to a reclaimed sculptural mass of antennae from the North World Trade Tower sitting atop a memorial plinth on the North end of the garden. The memorial is designed in such a fashion so that the point of the antennae’s shadow annually falls directly upon two stone obelisks set in the landscape at precisely the times the towers fell on September 11th.
