In the 2015 / 2016 National WWI Memoiral, Washington, D.C. Design Competition, the Commission’s goal was to create a dynamic urban space and, more importantly, a timeless memorial that would duly honor the service of America’s World War I veterans while inspiring Americans today and tomorrow to better understand this profound event in our nation’s history.

In search of the most fitting design for this auspicious goal, the World War I Centennial Commission launched a two-stage international design competition. Stage I was an open call to submit design concepts for the memorial. After a thorough and rigorous review of the 350 entries, the Jury selected five finalists to participate in Stage II.

During Stage II the designers further refined and developed their concepts for the memorial. Stage II began in early September, 2015 with a briefing of those invited to participate in Stage II. In October and November, the Design Oversight Committee held Mid- course Reviews with each of the five design teams individually to provide input and advice regarding their respective designs. The Design Oversight Committee consisted of representatives of the World War I Centennial Commission; the public agencies that will have design approval authority over the ultimate design of the memorial, including the National Park Service, National Capital Planning Commission, Commission of Fine Arts, and General Services Administration; and other stakeholders, including the American Battle Monuments Commission.

Design submittals were received on December 9th. These works were shown publicly on the WW1CC web site as well as in the atrium of the John A. Wilson Building, at the Council of the District of Columbia, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, from 9:00am to 5:30pm, from December 14-22, 2015. Public comment was solicited throughout including via QR codes on the public display.

On January 6th, the designers presented their refined concepts to the Jury, who after reviewing the submittals and public comments, selected a winning design team to recommend to the Commission.

The U.S. World War I Centennial Commission formally announced the winning design team for the national World War I Memorial design competition on January 26, 2016.
