Pentagon Memorial Competition

Arlington, Virginia

Pentagon Memorial Competition was a response from our studio and submittal after the events of September 11, 2001. The competition called for a memorial that would remember those who lost their live at the crash site and on the plane. The site was given on the southwest side close to the site in which the plane came in and hit the Pentagon. We wanted this project to confront one with the reality of death and time. Those who were lost were at this particular moment in time needed a place of remembrance, of repose, of contemplation for those who would visit their last “place”.
