The County of Orange, the Board of Supervisors, and OC Parks are jointly sponsoring a competition for the design of a new Crime Victims’ Memorial to be placed at William R. Mason Regional Park.
The purpose of the competition is to create a memorial that will pay tribute to victims of crime, promote hope, healing, and remembrance for those touched by crime, give voice to those who cannot speak for themselves, and create a space for individual contributions to the site. For example, providing a place where individuals can inscribe names or display plaques in remembrance of crime victims from the community.
Two-Phase Competition Structure
First phase of competition: The first stage solicits drawings and narratives which articulate the designer’s vision for the memorial site.
A ten paneled jury will select up to five finalists to move on to stage two.
Second phase of competition: The second stage solicits detailed design documents such as a logo design.
The five finalists will also present their design concepts to the ten paneled jury.
