Our proposal for the Atlantic City Holocaust Memorial Pavilion pays respect to all who have lost their lives as a result of ones inhumanity to another. The memorial opens up from the boardwalk edge along a major zig-zagged spine which signifies the journey from birth to childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age, to an elevated point achieving a view to the ocean and reflection to the end of life. This journey is severed by long vistas pointing to the ocean edge which represents the memorial route. These passages are filled with thousands of moveable columns each filled with letters. Visitor interaction enables names, phrases, and sayings to be found, as a gesture of bringing back the memory through movement and discovery.
