Sandy Hook Memorial

Memorial proposed for Sandy Hook's Treadwell Park in Newtown, Connecticut, in honor of the 26 lives lost in the Sandy Hook High School shooting. Constructed of 26 precast concrete panels, the main memorial structure surrounds an inaccessible sky courtyard reserved for the memory of those lost.


Surrounding the main memorial is 26 solitary time capsules, each with a light projected towards the base of the main memorial. When viewed inside the main memorial, all 26 lights reflect off of polished stainless steel panels, congregating into one ephemeral light to represent all those lost together.
