The purpose of this project was to share my idea of what building should go where Ground Zero stands.  My project was inspired by a Zen Garden in Kyoto, Japan, called Ryoan-ji which was created for Buddhists by the Fujiwar family in the 11th Century.  In this Zen Garden, they used the sound of water, and the feel of sand to create peace.  This building builds peace, because the whole idea of a Zen garden is to bring peace, and serenity.  This building gives peace and closure to those who lost someone on 9/11.
