On September eleventh, ten years after the World Trade Center attack, politicians and relatives of the victims will gather again in New York. This time, they’ll meet in a memorial garden, complete with water cascades in the footprint of the original Twin Towers. It’s the first completed section of the redeveloped World Trade Center site. In 2003, Daniel Libeskind’s firm was chosen to design a new master plan for the site. The famed architect talks with Diane about why the project reaffirms his belief in democracy.

Guests

  • Daniel Libeskind architect, master planner for the World Trade Center site and author of the memoir, "Breaking Ground."
