NEW YORK CITY: "Infinite Forest" Design Chosen For West Village AIDS Memorial

The backers of the proposed AIDS memorial in Manhattan's West Village have selected Infinite Forest as the winning 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.
