Proposal cover with CFA Approved


for the
National WWI Memorial in Washington, D.C.

It started in October of 2016 with the first design submission of the National WWI Memorial in Washington, D.C. to the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts.

After three years of collaborative iterations and improvements, on Thu. 9/19/19 the latest design submission for a National WW1 Memorial in our nation’s capital received FINAL APPROVAL from the CFA marking a major milestone in the realization of the project!

VIEW or DOWNLOAD the detail design document by clicking here! 

The Commission of Fine Arts is the government agency – established in 1910 – that is charged with advising the Federal Government and the District of Columbia on matters of design and aesthetics, as they affect and preserve the dignity of the nation’s capital. This includes overview of all memorials.

In 2014, Congress authorized Pershing Park as the location for the WW1 Memorial. It is on Pennsylvania Avenue one block from the White House in front of the iconic Willard Hotel.

WWI Centennial Commission Executive Director, Dan Dayton notes, “One hundred years ago American families sent 4.7 million of their sons and daughters off to a war that would change the world. Finally, with this Memorial they will be recognized in the nation’s capital”.

Join us in bringing this recognition to life in DC, where, for generations to come the memorial will stand as an important testament to our national heritage.

We invite you to view or download the 80-page design document that details every aspect of the Memorial, from the creative and schematic design, to nuanced detail of the materials, stone, and metals that are being used, to the lighting, the inscriptions, the plants that will grace the park and more…
The document is a wonderful insight into what is coming
