The September 11 Museum Pavilion by the architecture firm, Snøhetta, is an entry to the underground Memorial Museum. The design centers around trident-shaped columns salvaged from the World Trade Center towers that were destroyed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. This artist's rendering shows a close-up view of the salvage beams.

The museum is scheduled to open in 2014.
