David Dillon/Dallas Morning News Ten Best Designs for 1997

Selected through an international competition process, the $7.8M national award-winning memorial is a 3.3-acre urban site in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. Designed to engage three separate street edges and two adjacent existing structures, the memorial offers active pedestrian edges and multiple opportunities for connections to surroundings. Internationally acclaimed architecture critic Paul Goldberger calls the Oklahoma City National Memorial the most successful public space in Oklahoma City.
