CULTURAL LANDSCAPE PAYS TRIBUTE TO OUR MARINES

SEMPER FIDELIS MEMORIAL PARK

QUANTICO, VA

 

MEMORIAL PARK EXPANDS MUSEUM GROUNDS

This commission was the result of a winning design competition. The 10-acre Semper Fidelis Memorial Park creates an outdoor environment to reflect and inspire visitors in honoring our Marines. Situated adjacent to the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the park utilizes symbolic and cultural landscape gestures throughout to represent the lives of Marines.


RICH LANDSCAPE REVEALS STORIES OF A MARINE'S LIFE

The bold, geometric and formal landscape gestures of the museum are juxtaposed to the informal braiding of paths, memorial walls and overlooks within Semper Fidelis Memorial Park. A chapel is situated within the park, and various sculptures commemorate the work Marines do in serving their country. A series of water features provide a place for serenity and reflection.
