Pershing Park could be the site of a new World War I memorial.

From the celebratory spirit of the World War II Memorial to the stark sobriety of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Washington’s commemorative spaces use a diverse range of techniques, styles, and design philosophies to create spaces of honor. As architects and federal officials begin to look at how to convert Pershing Park into a national memorial commemorating the First World War, they must consider how to design a space that encourages remembrance of the lives lost while still serving as a functional urban park.
