AIDS Memorial Park Design chosen: 'Infinite Forest'

The design for the AIDS Memorial Park in NYC's West Village has been chosen.  Click the pic above for a larger view of the chosen design.

The act of memorializing the AIDS epidemic with a physical gesture goes beyond remembering and honoring the dead. AIDS is not a war, nor a disease conquered. There are no definite dates or victims. In our design process, we emphasize the changing and varied ways through which AIDS affects us personally and as a society. It is important to create a space that conveys our sense of solemn respect, remembrance and loss, without resorting to symbolism around a date, image, or names.
