The colonnade reminiscing the Yamasaki motif surrounds each building footprint, defining a courtyard within. The interior is sunken with steps going down to the center. At the center for building one is a Japanese style bed of pebble sand expressing the destruction and barrenness of Ground Zero. At the center for Building Two, a reflecting pool, much like at the Oklahoma City memorial. Water is always soothing and refreshing, symbolizing tears as well as the source of new life. It begins to paint the picture of the healing process, beginning with feeling the pain full force then moving on through the celebration of life. This can be compared with a seasonal change from winter to spring, a desert rain, etc. But it needs to be rich in metaphors to become a vehicle of healing.
