PEACE MEMORIAL COMPETITION - Washington DC - 1989
Thirty-three acres of Hane's Point, adjacent to the Jefferson Memorial, was to be set aside for the nation's first peace memorial, and would be under the auspices of the National Park Association. The entrance consists of two massive concrete truncated wedges, engraved with every known historical signifier of the concept PEACE, and a free standing polished bronze droplet representing a human tear. Tangent to this area is the Plaza of Longitude, Latitude and Attitude (a collection from around the world of the great writings on peace engraved in the blocks underfoot). This model kept me concentrated on the hill for the entire summer.
