LMDC selects associate architect for WTC memorial.
Davis Brody Bond LLP will work with the Design Team of Michael Arad and Peter Walker in the realization of the design for the memorial.
Davis Brody Bond LLP, which has practiced in New York City for more than forty years, has an outstanding reputation earned on such notable New York City projects as Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Apollo Theater Foundation, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum.
Davis Brody Bond's work has also included important public memorial complexes such as the Martin Luther King Jr. Center in Atlanta and the Civil Rights Institute in Birmingham, Alabama.
The firm also has a long history and familiarity with the World Trade Center site. The firm, located in Lower Manhattan, employs approximately 90 people and is led by five partners.
"The selection of a firm of such high caliber to work with Michael Arad and Peter Walker is an important step forward in the achievement of the memorial," said LMDC President Kevin M. Rampe. "Davis Brody Bond LLP has left their mark on New York City with exceptional projects and we are pleased to have them involved in working towards building the memorial that will honor all of those who lost their lives on September 11th 2001 and in the 1993 bombings."
The winning consulting team was chosen after a publicly advertised Request for Proposals that resulted in 17 proposals.
DBB's role as Associate Architect will be to preserve the intent of the original design, maintaining design quality through all stages of design, and being responsible for schedule, budget, and coordination.
"It is an honor and a privilege for Davis Brody Bond to be selected as Associate Architect for the World Trade Center Memorial," said Steven M. Davis, Partner of Davis Brody Bond LLP.
"The project is vital to the reconstruction of lower Manhattan and is an essential part of the healing process in the aftermath of September 11th. We are looking forward to working closely with Michael Arad, Peter Walker and the LMDC."
