        NOVA Online | The 9/11 Memorial Mock-Up

        Learn about the importance of mock-ups to engineering design, as architect and designer Michael Arad reveals a partial model of the 9/11 Memorial in this video from NOVA Online. He examines a small mock-up that has been assembled at the Brooklyn Navy Yard to see how the materials—bronze, granite, and water— interact, how they hold up to the elements, and what the finished memorial will look like to visitors. He explains the need for physical models, because computer models cannot adequately demonstrate how an individual?s senses might perceive various aspects of the finished design.
