JULY 2002:Published project called “Absence” which was a response to the terrorist attacks on September 11th 2001.  Building Design Journal, Issue 1543 July 2002. The Project questioned “What is the status of the architectural memorial in the digital age of virtual archives and spontaneous obituaries?” (Extract bellow from BD Issue 1543 written by Jeanne Sillett)

“Alyas Latif’s project is a response to the terrorist attacks on September 11th which the world witnessed through TV in real time. What is the status of the architectural memorial in the digital age of virtual archives and spontaneous obituaries? Conceived as an articulated emptiness on the Island of Meadows (Staten Island), it confirms the actual space on earth once occupied by the 3000 individuals who effectively disappeared in an elongated moment. This physical void, below the horizon of the meadow and open to the sky, carries the collective imprint of 3000 markers which would rest in 3000 separate ‘home’ locations around the world. Beneath the void, the glass imprints of the names and various dates of birth and the unifying date of death are cast in light and shadow on 3000 columns propping the slab. In this hypostyle hall visitors may simply wander in the enigmatic index of absence, or browse infinities of information and opinion on identical laptops available on loan. Framing the space(s) of absence is a layer of building which contains archive, library, meeting rooms, auditorium, administration, circulation and public facilities, within a girdle of gardens which mediate between the meadow island and the sunken spaces.”  Jeanne Sillett
