This COVID-19 pandemic memorial has been designed by architecture firm GómezPlatero for placement in Uruguay as a place to help pay homage to those who have been lost to the virus and allow visitors to reflect amidst the majesty of the seaside location.
The memorial consists of a center platform that is accessed via a ramp that leads to an expansive observation deck with a hollow section in the middle. This allows visitors to watch the waves below and offer them a place to reflect alone or with others.
The COVID-19 pandemic memorial measures in at 40 meters in diameter with the center opening measuring in at 10 meters. The memorial would accommodate up to 300 visitors at a time while obeying social distancing guidelines.
