Veterans Memorial Center at Jacksonville National Cemetery

Location: Jacksonville, FL

This Conceptual Design was developed on a volunteer basis to illustrate a potential design solution for a memorial center serving the new Jacksonville Memorial Cemetery. The renderings were specifically created for the Advisory Board to use as part of a subcommittee presentation to the Veterans Administration in July 2010.

The primary notion for the building comes from an historic image of a military encampment during the Civil War. Visually the camp is defined by rows of white tents organized in simple but precision order. The protection of common gable roofs reinforces a sense of home. Soldiers return home together for one last time to their final safe haven. Here they are remembered and honored for their sacrifices by families, friends and future generations.
