The site, facing West on NE 2nd Ave, Miami FL, covers 72FT x 10FT of the Miami City Cemetery entrance. Memorial Wall gives a moment of remembrance to those in their last resting place; a transition between the street and the sacred. The center piece urn wall is circled by still water representing calmness and serenity. The middle wall also serves as a divider between the road and the main cemetery, leading visitors around and through the wall. Within the wall there is a memorial garden, a place to buy flowers, a public bathroom, and sitting areas on the back side of the memorial. The elevated roof provides gaps for directed and diffused light; combined with the use of water, stone, and plants creates an ambient, peaceful, and calm environment for visitors.
