Abstract [en]

The proposed memorial site sits on the axis between the suburban fabric of the city, predominately existing to the west of Albany Avenue and the tourist and commercial centre of the city to the east. Building on the formal composition of the city the proposition situates itself on a north south axis with the existing World War I Memorial located in O'Donnell Park. Albany Avenue opens into Route 40 formed from the Oregon Trail navigating from Atlantic City, west to San Francisco.Visitors are presented with both the World War I Memorial and the Holocaust Memorial.

The Genocide Memorial appears as a black Chamber in the Atlantic Ocean extending the city's fabric into the sea, connecting all continents through the moving waters of the ocean. Amongst the sand and removed from the sea a room, described as the Orientation Chamber, sits marking access from the boardwalk to the beach. As a result the memorial site expands beyond a bounded territory encompassing the city's formal layout, its boardwalk and its inherent natural and man made landscape.
