Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects will design a memorial in New Jersey marking the ongoing recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy. They join a team of design and construction professionals providing pro bono services for this cause.
The memorial will be constructed entirely out of site-cast tilt-up concrete and located along the shore in Highlands, N.J. The site overlooks Sandy Hook, an area that was devastated by the storm.
“We wanted to make something that can serve a purpose beyond a monument that can only be viewed,” said Tod Williams. “Three conical oculi in the roof canopy will join to reflect the coming together of the community, both residents of Highlands, N.J. and all those affected by Sandy, to help to rebuild.”
