WWI Memorial Design Competition receives over 350 entries

Entries_WW1_Design-Competition

Earlier this month we posted the call for the World War One Memorial Design Competition which recently closed. The organisers have announced that they received over 350 entries for the competition. There is a wide variety of design submissions – the classical memorial,  literal, architectural forms, anti-memorial, landscape intervention and others drawing upon other memorials (intentional or otherwise).

The overall design quality of  the submissions designs is high with many submissions providing great representation of the overall design intent many outstanding examples of architecture and landscape architecture design.

I encourage you to review some, if not all the designs to see the encouraging signs that landscape architects are able to create many high quality designs. I think the judging panel will have a hard time selecting a shortlist and winner from the some 365 entries. The competition organisers have posted all submissions on the World War One Memorial Design Competition website with the finalists to be announced in mid-August.
