Let's Roll

A memorial design has been chosen to honor the passengers of Flight 93 who rose up on September 11th against their hijackers and foiled an attack on Washington, DC.

The "Crescent of Embrace" memorial, created by a team of designers led by Paul Murdoch Architects of Los Angeles, was chosen Wednesday 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 in a field in rural Pennsylvania.

The chapel, featuring 40 chimes symbolizing each of the victims, will stand at the entryway to the vast park.

"The idea is, as the wind continues through the site, there will be sounds generated that will act as a living memory to those who died," Murdoch said.

Murdoch's design just slightly edged out a design submitted by The Idiom's Kid Various which envisoned a tableaux of bronze sculptures depicting 40 ordinary Americans kicking the living shit out a pack of sub-human terrorists.

I think the wind chimes are pretty cool.
