In April 2003, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation launched what became
the largest design competition in history. Across six continents, from 63
nations and 49 states, 5,201 individuals answered the call to honor all who
were killed in terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993.
The global outpouring of support reflects an unbounded faith in humanity– one
that transcends nationality and geography.
