"The memorial has its roots in a design that Arad, then an unknown 34-year-old architect, submitted to the 2003 memorial design competition, which drew 5,201 entries in all. Arad's proposal was as stark as it was simple: those two huge voids, filled with rushing water, set into an empty, monumental plaza. It was also remarkable for its disdain for Libeskind's master plan, which called for the area around the tower footprints to be sunken well below street level. That promised to keep ground zero an open wound even as new skyscrapers rose along its edges."
