The Landscape is incised by straight lines made of massive walls beginning from the gateway and symbolizing courses of three airplanes hijacked and flown into the twin tower and the Pentagon. Flight 93 failed to hit its intended target. This Memorial intends to commemorate heroism of its 40 passengers and crew. The Parking is nearby the entrance of National Park so no vehicoles but the Service ones could circulate around the site. A small scale interchange building -  Information Centre and toilets - supplies a shuttle to the "40 Heroes Plaza" with several stops along the way; it runs on top of the Wall that cuts and reshapes the Landscape to direct attention to the Memorial. People also walks and traverse south through the large canyon cut on the Ridge in Procession to the Sacred Ground. Display panels and columns arranged on a grid prepare visitors. A second grid contains the outlines of the Twin Towers in their real scale giving an idea of their bigness and tragic end. The "40 Heroes Plaza" is based on the third grid with 40 terraces, one for each victim. Visitor Information Centre, Mainteinance Facility and more find place here and grow with time. A Path leaves the Plaza and reaches the Sacred Ground through a tunnel that comes out in the marble bowl symbolizing the crash crater. Only Family members and authority can access the Memorial from the top

where titanium wingribs open like a hand, symbol of the connection between Spirit, Heaven and Earth.
