An appropriate memorial for these “found” gravestones should provide the visitors the sense of search and discovery. The space and place should be both contemplative and suspending.
We would like to place a memorial at each of the four original grave sites to provide its own distinct quality. Each memorial will have the same key elements or kit of parts.
