Second Juror's Review

Juror: Muhammed Abdulla

1. Lei Zhang, Yuan Lei, China - DESIGN OF THE MONUMENT
It is an interesting architectural intervention; reworking the war destructive scene into a 'museum' to review what has happened. The concept and the structure reflect the social and culture aspects of Iraqi society.

2. Yaniv Ophir, Gila Fakterman - Black Box

Using the Black Box implicates a crucial question, what has revealed of the war on Iraq yet?

The magnifying construction of the Black Box is impressive as well as relocating it from one major city to another offers the chance to bring the issues beyond one location.


3. Joseph Choma - INFLEXION
The hardness of the concrete and the pureness of the form of the proposed vertical monument is drawing the visitor to experience the non/existence with confrontation of what role we do have to take in time of war?

4. Mehedi Amin - Lost WORLD.....
The design of the monument set impressively in terms of concept and spatial, confronting the visitor/the witness with two entries or two exits. The military and futuristic appearance of the construction imposes alienation feelings toward the world and us.

5. Sara Fiore - An Inter-cultural Blogscape
This proposal reminds me with campaign of Amnesty International 'It's Not Happening Here But it is Happening Now'. Relocating what happing somewhere into elsewhere, using the new technology to be in touch/living the 'Happening Now'.

6. Chuck Chaney - One was Too Many
Intellectually and emotionally Chuch has approached the topic. Through flag folding ceremony, she is calling the visitor/the witness to participate in ongoing conversation and forming a site specific memorial. She is spreading the topic and the responsibility into people to take an action.

7. Erin Finch Stevens - A Common Thread
The proposal expresses a deep research of the context and the location of tackled topic. It is remarkable installation to represent the enormity of the Iraqi casualties by a black banner that winds throughout the public spaces. The timing and the locations of the installation is crucial matter.

8. Ivan Contreras Rubio - The Presence of the Absent
The proposed monument includes spaces variety in feeling, spatial and quality. It indicates into the life after was disasters, through creating slots that lead into four volumes for public library, auditorium, museum and space for reflection.

9. Tyler Adams - Oil
Tyler has invested interestingly the symbolic and the quality of the proposed elements; oil and light and the form of the cube to address the topic.
