At the center of the memorial is a sculpture titled ?Infinite Wave?? which recreates a single wave formed from 31 individual streams, one for each British national who lost their lives in the attacks. Each stream is formed from a graceful twisting and turning stainless steel tube. This material has been chosen for its reflective qualities which add to the water like the appearance of the form, creating a dynamic sculpture that reflects the trees, sunlight and natural landscape surrounding it.

When approached from the front the sculpture forms a simple arch which welcomes visitors inside. When viewed diagonally the form shifts to create the mathematical symbol of infinity, ?. As visitors move further around to view the sculpture from the side the form shifts again to create a pair of wings, a sy...
