Building the Plaza
Lithograph print created by Brenda Berkman titled Building the Plaza. The print depicts figures of construction workers on the site rebuilding the WTC Plaza which includes the 9/11 Memorial, cranes in the background are constructing the One World Trade Center building. The print is signed in the lower right corner.
This print is part of a series titled 36 Views of One World Trade Center created by 9/11 first responder and FDNY member Brenda Berkman as she documented the construction of the new One World Trade Center building from 36 vantage points around the city. For Berkman, printmaking became a path out of the trauma she had experienced on 9/11 and in the months she spent at Ground Zero.
