London-based architecture firm ACME was awarded third prize in a recent competition to design a United Nations memorial.  Initiated by the city of 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.
