World War I Memorial Competition was held in 2015, proposing a new national monument at Pershing Park adjoining the White House in DC. Our team of artists, sculptors and architects came together in July to design the following entry. The competition received over 350 entries. Our classical design, a courtyard with Cenotaph and allegorical figures, received positive notice by critics including Justin Shubow, president of the National Civic Arts Society in his article in Forbes Magazine.
