a memorial for all wars: the Polynational War Memorial



Editorial No 5

By: Jon Brunberg | posted: 2/3/2006 1:00:00 AM


This is the first editorial in quite a while, which doesn't mean that the project has been in a winter sleep. The project has on the contrary proceeded to a production mode, which means that a proposal for a Polynational War Memorial is under creation. In September an important step towards such a proposal was taken when the Swedish architects Testbedstudio designed an Interfaith Centre for the memorial complex, a proposal which is currently being adapted for 3D animation. Contact was made with peace- and conflict researchers, musicians, architects and 3D-animators for the work currently in progress. These recent developments will be documented in detail on this site during the spring. We will also add new features to the site, starting with a personal memorial section. This is a service for you who want to create a personal page in memory to lost loved ones. If you want to be notified about this service and other news, please use this form to add your email address to our mailing list. Please also check out the interview with Pablo Castro of OBRA Architects in New York, who designed one of the three winning entries for the Freedom Park Memorial and Museum that is planned for completion in Pretoria South Africa in 2009. Their proposal is this months featured memorial.
