Competition Overview


The purpose of the international design competition was to discover a design for the Flight 93 National Memorial that embodies the spirit of the Mission Statement and is a fitting memorial to the 40 individuals, passengers and crew, who on one September morning changed the history of the nation.

In order to discover such a design, the Partners adopted a two-stage design competition process. Stage I was open to all, designers and the general public alike, to allow the greatest participation and gather as many ideas as possible. Stage II was limited to the five finalists selected from Stage I. The winning design was chosen from the finalists’ Stage II entries.
