United Nations Memorial Cube

October 20, 2009


London-based architecture firm ACME was recently awarded third prize in a competition to design a United Nations memorial. Initiated by the city of Chungju in South Korea, the selected memorial will rest in the city’s UN Peace Park.

Built as a metaphor for how the UN operates and functions, the memorial space is meant to “represent the nature of the organization, where many different nations come together to create one entity, but without losing their individual identities.”

ACME’s proposal is comprised of a 1,500 seating assembly, two conference halls, a theater and exhibition spaces. An open staircase winds up the exterior of the building and leads all the way up to the roof, where a public garden and green roof awaits.
