Molloy College 9/11 Memorial

Rockville Centre, NY

Show Project Details

Cameron Engineering provided landscape Architectural services towards the development of a 911 memorial on the Molloy College campus. Working with the Colleges memorial committee, Cameron Engineering developed and presented a series of conceptual memorial options which evaluated location, layout, materials, landscaping, and precedent 911 steel memorials for context.

The area nearest Public Square plaza was selected as the preferred location because if its visibility, and setback from the main trafficked walks. Utilizing a member of steel retrieved from the World Trade Center as a central feature, Cameron Engineering developed a design utilizing twin monolithic rectangular limestone benches, and a matching limestone base for the steel memorial. Gravel pavement and a limited but strong plant pallet were used to accent the main stone features.

The 9/11 Memorial is dedicated to all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. As such, a quote by Catherine of Siena was selected by the Memorial Committee to be etched into the memorial. Cameron Engineering coordinated the stone selection, shaping, etching, and installation with a local fabricator.

The memorial was dedicated on September 11, 2012.
