WAR MEMORIAL
Design Concept Memory Illumination reconciles the design of a memorial honoring those who lost their lives during World War II.  The design creates a sequence that represents war, sacrifice, and peace.  Each phase of the sequence is symbolized by architectural elements. The lawn upon the site is the existing world. The retaining wall with the cracks represents the conflict and chaos of war. Just beyond, glass panels symbolize the soldiers’ efforts to keep peace. The glass illuminates the past conflict and chaos of the war represented in the massive retaining wall. Seeing and remembering the past behind the glass,  people remember how the war terribly took away many peoples’ lives. Finally, they meet a monument with glass embracing a concrete tower revealing the peace of the world, while at the same time, showing the effort and sacrifice in keeping that peace.
THE SYMBOLISM OF THE GLASS WALL Glass   as   a   material   not   only   shows   what is,   but   what   is   beyond   as   well.   The   glass contains    the    soldiers’    names,    honoring their   lives   in   the   war.   As   well,   it   helps   us remember   the   past,   expressing   the   war’s debris   through   the   massive   crack   in   the wall.
