The County of Orange has received 59 entries in a competition to design a Crime Victims' Memorial at William R. Mason Regional Park. The Orange County Board of Supervisors and OC Parks are asking that you provide your input on these designs.
The Orange County Board of Supervisors and OC Parks are sponsoring the competition, announced during National Crime Victims' Rights Week in April, 2013. The competition was open to all, and seven of the entries came from students. Additionally, 42% of the entries originated internationally, from countries including Australia, Mexico, Sweden, Japan, China and the United Kingdom.
This is an open, two-phase competition. The first stage solicited concept drawings and a narrative that fully articulate the designer1s vision for the monument site within Mason Regional Park. The 59 original entries were reviewed for completeness and consistency with the competition guidelines and those meeting the guidelines are posted below. From this group, a panel of eight judges will select the top entries to move on to the next phase of the competition, with five finalists expected to be announced in November.
The second stage will solicit detailed design documents in plan and elevation view, logo design, and an optional materials board. The Stage 2 submittals deadline is Jan. 30, 2014, followed by a public exhibition of the submittals in February and March. The formal winner announcement will be in April of 2014.
