It is always encouraging to hear about green rebuilding projects, and the opening of the 9/11 memorial -- on the 10th anniversary of that tragedy day -- gives us all a first look at the sustainable design of the World Trade Center site. The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation has "Remember, rebuild, renew" as a motto for the project to rebuild, and a lot of consideration was taken in finalizing plans for the sustainably redesigned site. Below, sources for information on the sustainable design of the 9/11 memorial plaza and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center in New York City.
