AIA National Competition




Design Architect, Competition, 4th Place

The design process for the international competition began with a look at the conflict within the war itself. Recognizing a conflict without official completion, the memorial attempts to establish closure or homecoming.

The design centered around six granite slabs laid out on a grid with the names of casualties in the Korean War inscribed on the slabs or walls. The walls double as a frame for viewing a path that emerges from a grove of cherry trees. This path leads to a group of bronze statues of returning soldiers embracing the flag.

KGP received an Honorable Mention for their design submission in the Korean War Memorial competition.
