Ahnjungguen Memorial Hall in Seoul, Korea by D•Lim Architects

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

Article source: D•Lim Architects

Ahn Jung-geun was a Korean independence activist, nationalist, and pan-Asianist. The Ahn Jung-geun Memorial Hall, rebuilt after the old one was demolished in 2009, is nestled in a small plaza behind the original building. Next to the site are the remnants of an old war shrine where Japanese people worshipped their warlords and spirits during the colonial era. Having dug up the age-old reminder of disgrace and humiliation, the new building for Ahn Jung-geun (1879-1910), a patriot and martyr, stands triumphantly over the site.

County World War I & II Veterans Memorial in Peoria, Illinois by Jeffery S. Poss Architect

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Article source: Jeffery S. Poss Architect

From the historical perspective of six decades, we can begin to understand the essential relationship between the two world wars. It is therefore fitting that Peoria County has envisioned a single project that commemorates both wars.  The Memorial features three similar white granite columns in two groups to represent the roman numerals “I” and “II.”  The columns are supported on black granite plinths.The plinths act as “cenotaphs”, or empty tombs, inscribed with the names of the county veterans who lost their lives in the wars.The memorial honors the 28,000 men and women from Peoria County who served during World War I & II.

AIDS MEMORIAL PARK in NYC by Walzworkinc and d’arc.studio

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Article source: Walzworkinc and d’arc.studio

The scars left from the devastation of AIDS on New York City are not visible. No buildings were downed from the attack of AIDS. Instead there are thousands of small holes where people’s lives were cut short. In fact there are over a hundred thousand of them throughout the city of New York. Also there are the millions of holes in the hearts and memories of those that survived them, the family members, friends, neighbors, and communities, those that nursed them, and the courageous activists who refused to allow the suffering and loss to be swept under a rug, who demanded attention, gave support and initiated action.
