The Void

 The following graphic illustrates the location of existing monuments in central London. Monuments in public space have the ability to control narrative and collective memory. This diagram highlights the need for variation, and an opportunity to implement a unique proposal for the way we create and allow for collective memory.

As part of our practice, The [204] Design Collective looks to apply concepts and theory discussed in the journal to the various projects we engage with. The following project is from a competition run by Historic England seeking proposals for new ways of remembering events, people and identities in the public realm. The [204] Design Collective has been actively exploring the meaning of and difference between memorials and monuments. Having written a response to, Alt-Monuments at Frieze Art 2017, we are excited to further contemplate this important spatial and cultural issue.
