Bronze Glory

June 22nd, 2005 + del.icio.us +digg

A little while ago I mentioned that I posting was going to be a little slow as I had a competition to work on. If you don’t remember, I believe my exact words were that I had masterpieces to design.
 
 The competition was for a National Police Memorial in Canberra. The results were announced today and I came equal third. Which I am happy with. The thing was never going to stand up anyway; it was totally going to fall over without warning.

  The winner is a variation on a theme set in place by Maya Lin and does not excite me a great deal. To me, second place was probably a stronger scheme and had some beautiful drawings. The other 76 entries can be seen here.

 My proposal looked to create a memorial that was not a wall with names on it. It used the elements of column and roof to express the idea of a heavy load being carried by many. The roof folds down to collect water and brass windchimes echo the bells of the nearby carillon. I thought everyone dug windchimes. Seems I was mistaken.
