Since the list of wars since 1900 was updated this August, it has been linked to numerous times and is at this moment the most visited page on this website. In the wake of that publicity, for which I am indeed very grateful, I’m getting questions about my definitions and the data and it’s perhaps time to straight out a few question marks.
A greatly improved master plan for the Polynational War Memorial is currently being produced and I’m proud to present a couple of snapshots from the ongoing work. This is the first master plan that comprises all programs of the original plan including parks, administrative buildings, a research centre and details of the transport infrastructure, and it has also been adapted to several changes in the programs that have been made in recent years. This master plan is located to a fictitious landscape which have allowed for increased artistic freedom in regards to the layout of the buildings and the infrastructure.
Two versions of the master plan are presented here: the first gives an overview of the buildings, environment and infrastructure while the second maps and explains the facilities and programs. This is certainly not the final master plan for the project but it is the by far most detailed version created hitherto and it will definitely serve as a good starting point for the continued design work. -
