DISPERSED MEMORIAL: A SPACE TO REFLECT, A SPACE TO HONOR, A SPACE TO REMEMBER, A SOLITARY SPACE, A COMMUNAL SPACE, A SPACE FOR HOPE, A SPACE TO EMBRACE. IN AN INTEREST TO LOOK BOTH BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS, TO EMBODY BOTH HONOR AND HOPE, P-AR SOUGHT AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE CONVENTIONAL FORM AND SINGULARITY OF HISTORIC MEMORIALS. WE PROPOSE TO BREAK UP THE MEMORIAL. DISPERSING IT ACROSS THE SITE WE CREATE A MEMORIAL GARDEN FOR CONTEMPLATION AND DISCOVERY. THIS CONTINUOUS GARDENSCAPE HAS NO TRUE BEGINNING OR END, NO DISTINCT ENTRANCE OR EXIT. IT’S MAZELIKE QUALITY AND SPATIAL VARIATION CREATES AN ENVIRONMENT OF INFINITE EXPERIENCE. A MEMORIAL TO RETURN TO AGAIN AND AGAIN, EACH VISIT OFFERING A NEW PERSPECTIVE, EACH VISIT DIFFERING FROM ANOTHER.
