September 11 Memorial Garden


This limited-edition book was created by the Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) for the families of British victims of 9/11 to mark the opening of the Memorial Garden in Grosvenor Square, London.

Alex wrote the text and obtained messages from HRH The Prince of Wales, The Ambassador of the United States and the Prime Minister. She also managed all aspects of book’s design, photography and production.

'September 11 Memorial Garden' opens by recording the physical labour of manufacturing elements of the site. It then outlines the landscape architect’s symbolic vision for the design and planting of the garden. The book culminates in a gatefold photograph of the plaques commemorating the names of those who died.



Alex Harvie specialises in devising and implementing content-led communications campaigns.


She has developed perception change strategies for large-scale regeneration projects including Wembley Park, the London Olympics, Barking Riverside and the Greenwich Peninsula, as well as devising national outreach projects for high-profile organisations such as DEFRA and the Design Council.


Alex’s publishing work ranges from the commemoration of British victims of September 11 for DCMS, to the first definitive cultural redefinition of Iran in 70 years.
