Eisenhower Memorial Competition
One of four finalist proposals for the Memorial redefines a typical DC space by creating infinite vanishing points that address the evolving American urban landscape. A celebration of the legacy of public service and space as a narrative, our design creates spaces of time in crisp white marble set against calm water and a pastoral landscape. A Stepped Lawn, tall grass American Prairie in the back, and a thirteen-striped Regimented Grove connect the memorial ground to the city and its visitors. These landscapes speak to Eisenhower’s life - Kansas prairie, Normandy shores and Washington Mall.
