John F. Kennedy Memorial Market Street/Commerce Street Dallas, Texas USA Philip Johnson 1970 This simple, concrete memorial to President Kennedy dominates a square in downtown Dallas 200 yards from where the President was assassinated. It is a space for contemplation, neither open nor closed. the 50 foot square enclosure with 30 foot high concrete walls would be oppressive, if not open in the center of two opposite walls, and along almost all of the base. In the center is a black granite slab, deliberately too square to be a tomb, inscribed simply with the President's name. It is intended to be "not a memorial to the pain and sorrow of death," but "a permanent tribute to the joy and excitement of one man's life."
