For the 200-foot-by-200-foot square reflecting pools with a 30-foot cascading waterfall on each side, Fisher Marantz Stone worked closely with the lighting manufacturer to create a submersible fixture that would meet the technical requirements of the National Electric Code and run on 25V or less.
Narrow-profile 3500K LED luminaires backlight the names of the victims which are stencil cut in the bronze parapet that rings the two reflecting pools.

The landscape design includes more than 400 white oak trees across the site. Square light columns, each standing just over 16 feet tall, incorporate security cameras and radio antennas along with the lighting element at the top: prismatic refractors with four 4-foot-long T8 lamps.
