Reflecting Absence, designed by Michael Arad and Peter Walker, was selected from 5,201 entries from 63 countries as the winner of the LMDC's design competition in January 2004. It is quiet, and the only thing that can be heard is the sound of footsteps on the nearby pavement. The pool is long and thin, and at the end, two large square fountains sit in the middle of the reflecting pool. They are the only thing that interrupts the smooth surface of the water. The waterfalls are designed to reduce the noise of the city, making the site more peaceful. Many parts of the memorial were planted by landscape architect Peter Walker with white oaks. The Memorial plaza is filled with more than 400 swamp white oak trees.
