The Dublin Grounds of Remembrance in Dublin, Ohio, is a one-acre park honouring the service of veterans and their families. On a site with no prior military significance, the project eschews a traditional 'monument' in favour of promoting the act of habitual walking and social gathering, reinforcing community remembrance and creating new significance for the land. This project creates a formal place for public gathering, and informal places for intimate contemplation. The copper Loggia, with its panoramic window, shelter and bronze poem wall laser-cut with two stanzas of Emerson's 'Concord Hymn', stands as a formal ceremonial backdrop, serving both as the hub for Veterans and Memorial Day celebrations and as a daily retreat for visitors. The Recognition Walk, bronze Guide Rail and new Sycamore Grove choreograph a contemplative route to the Dedication Seat Wall and Memory Wall, where visitors are able to engage in intimate reflection.
