Brief
Design a memorial for the martyrs in the capital of India. Create, preserve, and enhance public awareness.
Solution
To draw focus on self reflection rather than a sad memory and commemorating the national heroes. This was done by creating a series of intimate spaces evoking various different feelings and responses. The project manifests itself in the stability inherent in a system of charged site-lines representing the 48 departments of various states and territories within the national police structure.
My Role
Contributed largely to the conceptualisation, design and presentation.
