The US World War I Centennial Commission has announced an international design competition for a National World War I Memorial in Washington, DC
Open to professionals, students and ‘other interested participants’ – the contest seeks proposals for a new monument remembering the global conflict.
More than 116,000 American service members died during the war, and around 204,000 more were wounded.
The memorial will be built inside Pershing Park on Pennsylvania Avenue between 14th and 15th Streets.
Up to five shortlisted teams – set to be announced on 4 August – will be invited to participate in the competition’s second stage.
Further contest details will be announced on 21 May. The deadline for submissions is 21 July.
