Viewing Platform


The temporary Viewing Platform was built at Fulton Street several weeks after 9/11 to address the public’s desire for a dignified place to view Ground Zero without impinging on the urgent recovery effort. Elevated 13’ above the ground and over three hundred feet in length, the viewing platform provided a 180-degree view of the site. The primary materials are metal scaffolding, plywood and rough decking. The platform was conceived and executed in collaboration with David Rockwell and Kevin Kennon.
