The 50,000 sq. ft. National Holocaust Monument is a significant piece of architecture and urban design located in the nation’s capital. At a cost of $7M, the development covers three quarters of an acre. Its design features a large gathering space for ceremonies accommodating approximately 1,000 people. The monument is comprised of six triangular, concrete segments that create the points of the Star of David. Custom form-liner and self-consolidating concrete is used to create a photo-engraved wall. The structure is composed of skewed and sloping architecturally-exposed, reinforced concrete walls and galvanized steel frames with expanded metal mesh cladding.
