Seattle native and University of Washington school of architecture graduate Minoru Yamasaki designed these arches and the surrounding buildings of the Pacific Science Center for the 1962 World's Fair. In 1966 construction began on his most famous design, the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center, completed in 1971. In honor of the victims of violent hatred on September 11, 2001, the suffering and sorrow of their families, and the people of this nation and other countries swept up in the waves of the aftermath, we remember the horrific losses. We pause to honor their memories. May we find a way through this pain. May love prevail over hatred. Below is the moving tribute piece, Samuel Barber's "Addagio for Strings," Leonard Slatkin conducting the BBC Orchestra at Albert Hall in London four days after the attacks, the whole world in mourning.
