By creating a clean, green, safe city that pays homage to its storied history and takes advantage of its unique island setting, the new Atlantic City Tourism District master plan will offer a wide range of attractions and experiences for all ages. By promoting a strategy for redevelopment, phasing, and district-wide improvements, the master plan will serve as a catalyst for Atlantic City’s economic and social uplift.

Our friends from WORD shared their proposal for the Atlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial. The competition, which attracted over 700 submissions, asked participants to use the existing seaside pavilion at Atlantic City, New Jersey to create a kind of public space that commemorates the Holocaust and continues to bring awareness to the horrific happenings. “Its purpose is to fix our collective memory, to bear witness, to embrace the ineffable sense of loss,” explained the competition brief. For the Harrow, WORD creates two drastically different environments offering a strong visual to understand the happenings of the Holocaust and a place to calmly reflect.
