Vectorworks user PLANT Architect of Toronto has been awarded a 2010 National Honour Award by the CSLA (Canadian Society of Landscape Architects) for their design of the Dublin Grounds of Remembrance, a veterans’ memorial project in Dublin, Ohio.

The project was meant to be “not a memorial, but a place for reflection, contemplation, remembrance, honor, introspection and community gathering.” PLANT's design for the Grounds proposes the act of walking to generate a physical relationship with the site – the collective memory of this community using this land creates the commemoration, not a commemorative object.

The Grounds provide a ritual journey beginning at Dublin Road, through the Grove, along the perimeter of the cemetery wall, and then weaving down a ramping walk into an area of seclusion, for pause and reflection in the rugged ravine that overlooks Indian Run. The Memory Wall marks the end of the walk: a brass tube perforated stone wall designed to receive personal and private messages.
