A hero like a war veteran who dies in the middle in the fight should we honored. They fought for us and what do we give to them? In this time I will review a memorial architecture design to respect the war veteran who has die in war.
Recently I have got the information about the memorial architecture which called the Missouri Korean War Veterans. This memorial is completed designed by the Architects: Tilt-Up Concrete Association. This memorial is competed designed in Washington Square Park, Kansas City, Missouri. In September of 2011, the Missouri Korean War Veterans Memorial was dedicated at a ceremony in Washington Square Park in Kansas City, Missouri.
The memorial development project, which started as an effort to demonstrate the benefits of Tilt-Up concrete construction as part of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association’s (TCA’s) annual convention, quickly turned in to something so much more. Not only is the project a testament to the versatility, applicability and beauty of Tilt-Up construction, it is a demonstration of the generosity, pride and good will of TCA members. Most importantly, it continues the legacy of Korean War Veterans and recognizes those who paid the supreme sacrifice and gave their lives in defense of South Korea. More images and project description after the break.
I think this nice project is an addition to a dynamic context as with any work of the architecture. it is inserted into an already established built fabric, a continuous narrative, and the preconditions of each visitor Its presence alters ones experience not only of Washington Square Park but also of the process of recalling memories. In return, it is affected, and will continue to be by the continuous development of its physical context and the variety of people that visit it.
Maybe, the most meaningful role of the memorial is that it lends a haptic encounter to an otherwise intangible memory. The memorial project is charged with the demonstrating the versatility, applicability and the beauty of the Tilt-Up concrete construction beyond the programmatic elements of the project associated with the remembrance of those who served in the Korean War. These efforts can be seen in the exploitation of the inherent benefits of Tilt-Up. The articulation of the edges of the Tilt-Up panels and the use of them to mediate between the horizontal and vertical planes of concrete not only highlights the effectiveness of manipulating the one formed edge of a Tilt-Up panel, it aids in the reading of the overall form as a continuous ribbon.
Well that’s all, in the end I would like to say that an honor for the war veteran is important, don’t forget what they are fighting for! Have a nice day then!
