The World Trade Center Memo­rial in New York City is the cen­tre­piece of the new World Trade Center. Strict design gui­de­li­nes regar­ding sustai­na­bi­lity had to be obser­ved for the plan­ning of Memo­rial Plaza. Bea­ring this in mind, Land­scape Archi­tect Peter Walker and Light Desi­gner Paul Marantz opted to work with Selux to deve­lop the lighting for this envi­ron­men­tally-friendly public space.

Effi­cient, design-orien­ted steles were instal­led using MTR columns, the shape of which recalls the archi­tec­tu­ral lan­guage of the Twin Towers. The luminaire’s MTR refrac­tors attain long casting tra­jec­to­ries with maxi­mum anti-glare pro­per­ties, ensu­ring opti­mum visual com­fort for visi­tors to the plaza at this spe­cial New York City site. The pro­ject is cur­ren­tly under­going the LEED Gold cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­ce­dure and has been plan­ned to comply with the requi­re­ments of both the New York State Exe­cu­tive Order 11 and the WTC Sustai­na­bi­lity Design Gui­de­li­nes.
