London-based architecture firm ACME was awarded third prize in a recent competition to design a United Nations memorial.  Initiated by the city of Chungju in South Korea, the selected memorial will rest in the city’s UN Peace Park.  ACME’s proposal is comprised of a 1,500 seating assembly, two conference halls, a theater and exhibition spaces.  The organization of the memorial is metaphorically modeled similarly to the United Nations, where many parts make up the whole.

More about the memorial after the break.
