Tobin and anyone else are free to work for whomever they want, but a West Hollywood AIDS Memorial should not have in any way even the slightest connection to Saudi Arabia (via Tobin or anyone else) where gays face capital punishment by hanging, beheading, or stoning. And a local person who knows our history should be given this commission.

Susan Narduli’s design seems to be the only one that has any connection to where it is. The other ones look like they were designed to go just anywhere. That Tobin one really reminds me of a terrorism monument I saw in England, for instance.

Susan’s is much better, it looks more natural and more alive. the other thing looks like a torture chamber

Does
not Susan Mardulli’s design very strongly echo Washington, DC’s Viet Nam Memorial?

Why don’t any of these options work within the plans submitted by the chosen park architect ?
Also where is the proposal for the memorial that is designed into the underside of the stairs by the center entrance ?

Is this part of the park budget as proposed by the architect ?

just out of curiosity, what the heck happened to the plaques with names of those who died from aids, that were dedicated to trees planted along the boulevard?
wasn’t money raised to pay for the creation and installation of those dedications?
