Digital Restoration: 9/11 Memorial of Maryland
There were Maryland natives whose lives were taken at all three sites that were struck that Tuesday morning including the World Trade Center in Manhattan, the Pentagon in Washington D.C and a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where passengers on flight 93 heroically forced the hijackers to crash the plane well before they made it to Washington D.C., the assumed target of that plane.
The 9/11 Memorial of Maryland was unveiled on the 10 year Anniversary of the unforgettable attack. A 22 foot-long steel artifact, which consists of three steel beams and weighs 5,000 pounds, is the centerpiece of the memorial which is located in the plaza of Baltimore's own World Trade Center. The beams were originally a part of the New York World Trade Center's North Tower and are an eerie reminder of the terrible destruction caused by the attacks. They sit atop a large marble base that features the names of all of the Marylanders whose lives were lost that day.
The Ziger/Snead Architecture Team also incorporated three damaged limestone blocks from the Pentagon, which once again show the amazing destruction that resulted, while the site near Shanksville, Pennsylvania is represented by three large pieces of polished black granite from a quarry near the site. A smaller fragment of the steel beams is located on the observation level of the nearby World Trade Center along with limestone from the Pentagon and limestone rocks from the Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville. Each Marylander who was lost that day is represented in the exhibit by their name and photograph.
