Designers of the Maryland 9/11 Memorial are unveiling their plans.

The design for the memorial planned for the plaza in front of Baltimore’s World Trade Center at the Inner Harbor will be presented at the city’s public art commission on Wednesday afternoon.

The memorial, which will list the names of the 63 Marylanders killed in the attacks, incorporates twisted steel beams from New York’s World Trade Center towers and stone from the Pentagon. It will be dedicated on Sept. 11, 2011.

The design turns the plaza into a sundial recalling the events of the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. The markers will note the times when each plane crashed into the towers, the Pentagon and the field in Shanksville, Pa., and when each tower collapsed.
