Crescent of Embrace

This illustration, released by Paul Murdoch Architects, shows two textured concrete walls which frame the flight path of United Airlines Flight 93, aspects of the winning design of the Flight 93 memorial. The 2,000 acre "Crescent of Embrace" memorial site that includes a chapel with 40 metallic wind chimes was chosen Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2005, by the Flight 93 Advisory Commission. The aim of the one-year competition was to honor the 40 passengers and crew who died after their plane was hijacked and crashed on Sept. 11, 2001, in a field in rural Pennsylvania. At right, a raised plaza looks out towards the crash site.
