Notes on the Online Memorial Collection
posted: 2016-07-19| by: Jon Brunberg
When you’re contemplating the features and functions of contemporary war memorials, it’s almost impossible not to take the names of the killed into consideration. When I begun to work on the Polynational War Memorial project in 2004 I decided that I would follow that convention and make the names of all soldiers and civilians killed because of acts of war a fundamental part of the design. And I started to gather all those link in a separate section called "The Online Memorial Collection". This article discuss the importance of names and numbers.
