Garden of Timelessness,1996

Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial Park, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania   
Unrealized proposal, competiton semi-finalist. Maquette shown.
Granite, stainless steel, native Pennsylvania plantings.

This work proposes to combine two 4' granite stones leaning on one another to represent the idea of the bond of mutual dependency formed when one saves the life of another.

The names of the awardees are listed on a stainless steel screen.

Quotations from people who have been awarded the Medal of Honor are inscribed on a metaphoric "river" of stainless steel surrounding the garden.

Plantings such as oak and laurel would be chosen for their heroic symbolic meaning.
