Fire, Water, Earth, Air
We propose an inspired design that manifests the humanity of dedicated firefighters engaged in a perpetual struggle with the elemental forces that both imperil and save lives. Creating a dramatically heroic image coupled with an intimately contemplative space, this design would be a landmark memorial that would stand in testament to the enduring vigilance of Firefighters.
