How to memorialise 9/11 ?

Interesting article of a few weeks back from Rowan Moore, the Observer’s architecture critic, on what it is that is being built at Ground Zero. Although Moore doesn’t address the issue directly, there are many artistic assumptions that have to be made if a memorial is to be intelligible; and I wonder how easy that is, in a time of very limited consensus on ‘national’ art forms and styles.
