WWI MEMORIAL DESIGN COMPETITION

The World War I Memorial Design Competition was an international competition sponsored by the World War I Centennial Commission. There was no memorial to the war on the mall. The competition manual challenged the designers to propose “a memorial to honor and commemorate the service of American forces in World War I with sufficient scale and gravity that the memorial takes its place within the larger network of memorials and monuments situated on and around the National Mall”. The site is one block from the White House and overlooking the Capitol. It is to serve as both a dynamic urban space and a fitting memorial to a generation of veterans whose service and sacrifice were no less valorous and heroic than that of the veterans of later wars – the generation that were the fathers and mothers of “the greatest generation.”
