WWI Memorial Finalist

STL Architects has been selected as a finalist to design the new National World War One Memorial in Washington D.C. The U.S. World War One Centennial Commission has shortlisted 5 teams from over 350 international entries to enter into a Stage II Design Phase for the new National World War One Memorial. The Commission opened an international design competition for a National World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C. on May 21st, 2015. As part of America’s commemoration of the centennial of World War I, the United States Congress has authorized an enhanced and expanded World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C. Sited at Pershing Park on Pennsylvania Avenue, the Memorial will honor the 4.7 million Americans who served in the war, including the 116,516 who died, and will be a fitting addition to the national memorials to the three other great wars of the 20th century, located nearby on the National Mall. The objective of this design competition is to transform Pershing Park from a park that happens to contain a memorial to a site that is primarily a national World War I memorial, within a revitalized urban park setting with a distinct sense of place that complements the memorial purpose while attracting visitors, workers, and residents of the District of Columbia.
