A transparent wall, viewable from both sides, contains miles of recycled cables, photographs and artifacts that reflect the recent history of "911" and the call-takers, dispatchers and other staff members that help run this service. End-lit fiber optic cables deliver pulses of light that represent the rapidly changing communications technology that drives the "911" system.

Design Team: Benson Shaw, David Lilienthanl and Steve Marks.
