C100 Comments World War I Memorial Design

Stephen A. Hansen

The Committee of 100 on the Federal City is still concerned about some elements of the latest design for the World War I Memorial in Pershing Park, both in terms of some of the latest design aspects (especially the location of the walkways leading to and in front of the memorial sculpture) and also how information about American participation in World War I is provided at the Memorial. The Committee of 100 comments were sent to the National Capital Planning Commission for consideration at the Commission's October 4, 2018 meeting.
