Martin Luther King Jr. Chapel Back Wall

Enlarge image

This page is part of my 1999 entry for an international competition for the design of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, DC.

As you jog or walk along the Tidal Basin, you pass by a curved, granite wall etched with a silhouette of James Karales' rivetting photograph depicting the 1965 Selma to Montgomery march.

Walk up the pathway and you'll enter the intimate amphitheater where Martin Luther King Jr. stands life size, beckoning you to stand with him, and share his vision and journey toward peace and love.
