The onePULSE Foundation is proud to announce the first phase of the process for designing and building a memorial, museum and associated open space, which will honor the memory of those lost and affected by the tragic events of June 12, 2016 at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, as well as inspire and bring hope to all of those who visit this place of remembrance and education.
We are reaching out to all of you seeking to connect with the onePULSE Foundation with your concepts and ideas for the Memorial & Museum. At this time, we are not looking for finished designs, but rather big, broad ideas that will enhance the work of the onePULSE Foundation, and those who will be working with us, so that we may approach the work ahead with the best set of options and ideas possible.
We do not purport to have all the answers, nor are we able to connect directly with all of those interested parties who may wish to express their ideas, concepts and designs to us. We recognize that there are many approaches that could result in a brilliant and successful environment that will educate and inspire our community – and all of our visitors into the future. We ask for your help in tackling this very challenging task.
Rough ideas or more polished proposals are welcome. Note that this is not a design competition, but a request for ideas. We want to think clearly and carefully as we proceed, but we are also open to the greatest amount of creativity and innovation imaginable. Before stepping forward with concrete plans for the design we want your assistance in thinking through this very important process and are very thankful for your generous participation.
The point of the Ideas Generator is not to select a “winner,” but rather to allow for a powerful exchange between you and the onePULSE Foundation. At a later date we will announce an RFP for the actual project.
It is also our intention to display a selection of these submissions, electronically, in print or via physical display, as part of our ongoing process to remain engaged in public dialogue as we develop the plans for the Memorial & Museum. By submitting materials to us, you are granting us permission to distribute this material as described above. Credit for your work will be attached to any display or publication of these materials.
