Last year thousands of people visited the National 9/11 Memorial [1] as it opened in New York City, however it turns out that the accompanying 9/11 Museum [2] will not be opening anytime soon due to a financial dispute between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Both organizations refuse to pay for the site’s infrastructure costs – which amount to hundreds of millions of dollars – and as a result the museum designed by Snohetta [3] is expected to miss its projected opening date of September 11, 2012.
