Gertler & Wente Architect’s work at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza included the design of the off-site secure visitors’ check-in plaza, the security screening area (including a separate check-in for family and friends of the victims) and the 9/11 Memorial retail space in addition to the perimeter barricade/fencing/entry security system for the entire Memorial Plaza. We worked closely with the NYC Police Counter Terrorism Unit, Port Authority Police, Mayors Office, the NYCLandmarks Commission, the NYC Building Department, the NYC DOT and State DOT, and of course the 9/11 Museum and Memorial Commission to achieve the successful opening of the plaza on the ten-year anniversary- 9/11/2011.
