The most influential work in the history of monument design. For the first time, someone suggested that the monument is not tall and upright. Because the Vietnam War is not worthy of praise, the designer flattened it and made it stable.
I came to this city on a business trip and visited the attractions here. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, also known as the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, is located in Washington, the capital of the United States. It is a national war memorial commemorating American soldiers who served in the Vietnam War. The monument consists of three parts: the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, the Three Warrior Statues, and the Vietnam Women's Monument. The memorial wall is the most famous. The monument is commonly referred to as the "Vietnam War Memorial", the "Vietnam War Wall" or the "Wall" for short. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is in the middle of the Constitution Garden, to the northeast of the Lincoln Memorial, near the National Mall. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall was designed by Lin Ying, a non-Chinese architect, and the main part was completed in 1982. The monument is maintained by the U.S. National Park Service and has approximately 3 million visitors each year. The plan of the memorial wall is a flat V shape. The east wing points to the Washington Monument, and the west wing points to the Lincoln Memorial. On the black marble monument wall a few meters high, the names of more than 50,000 people who died in the war are carved. The entire monument wall is placed in a large lawn, with green space to set off the monument body. Lin Ying used the natural terrain formed by the elevation difference between the two sides, the low and the middle height, so that the names inscribed on the inscription increased from both sides to the middle. Under this monument without heroic image, under this huge wall full of names of dead people, people are thinking about war and peace, comforting countless American soldiers who sacrificed their souls in other countries. When you come to the Lincoln Memorial, there are many signs nearby. Follow the signs and you can go to many nearby monuments. Some of them are relatively hidden and in the woods. Everyone should look for them carefully and try not to come when it is dark.
The Vietnam War Memorial, like a black scar, is embedded in the ground by the reflection pool, showing the cruelty of war. Two pieces of black marble of more than 60 meters long are inlaid together. The joint is 3 meters high and stretches to both sides in a V shape until it is buried underground. The hustle and bustle of people and scattered stars and stripes and flowers in front of the monument show people's respect for the monument and nostalgia for the dead.
The Vietnam War Memorial, a solemn place, and the Vietnam War surrounding it, I hope there will also be such a place for the public to visit and present flowers to show respect. It makes sense. All countries had suffered heavy casualties.
It is worth mentioning that the Vietnam Monument is the work of Lin Huiyin's niece Lin Ling. It is a sinking structure, the name of the "Vietnam Wall" is more apt. In the sun, walking in rows can reflect the name of their shadow, or will be shocked.
