Proponents of a planned memorial commemorating the Armenian Genocide unveiled the design Sunday for their proposed monument.
The simple, yet deeply symbolic design created by an Art Center College of Design student Catherine Menard was greeted with acclaim and admiration as it was unveiled during a ceremony at the school.
Menard's design was chosen by judges from the Pasadena Armenian Genocide Memorial Committee over 16 other entries. She is working with renowned architect Stefanos Polyzoides to translate the design into an architectural blueprint.
"I only hope it matters to the people that it's for," Menard said.
The 26-year-old Environmental Design student added that the idea of leaving her mark on her hometown of Pasadena by designing a memorial that will stand for generations to come was a source of pride, and a bit overwhelming.
"It still gives me goose bumps," she said. "I still get this terrific, wonderful feeling. "
It was a difficult and thoughtful process coming up with a design to honor the 1.5 million Armenians slain by the Ottoman Turks in what was then the Ottoman Empire between 1915 and 1923, Menard said.
The final product is minimalist in design, yet densely packed with meaning and symbolism.
