World War One Memorial Project


Date: May 21, 2015

The United State World War One Centennial Commission is pleased to announce an international design competition for a new national World War One Memorial to be located on Pennsylvania Avenue, 1 block from the White House in Washington, DC.
The memorial will serve as both a dynamic urban space and, more importantly, a fitting memorial to a generation of veterans whose service and sacrifice were no less valorous and heroic than that of the veterans of later wars – the generation that were the fathers and mothers of "the greatest generation."
