Veterans Plaza – Texas Christian University — Fort Worth, Texas
Veterans Plaza embodies the sacrifice and heroism of veterans and their families. Our design reflects this through a grove of trees that symbolize the permanence of loss and the importance of remembrance. When one of the trees in a grove is lost, the grove is no longer the same, leaving a patch of sky where there once was none. Within the space where the trees had stood will be a monument structure with plaques bearing the names of the fallen. The absence of trees above the monument will allow sunlight to penetrate the canopy of trees during the day, illuminating the monument and providing a symbolic link to the heavens.
