Emergent Memory: the National AIDS Memorial Competition explores the complex themes emerging from the 2005 international design competition for the National AIDS Memorial. The book presents a selection of the 201 entries from 21 states and 24 countries including the winning design, 4 finalists, 7 honorable mentions and 13 entries of note, and it includes a 4 page color gatefold exhibiting all the juried entries. The publication places the design of th National AIDS Memorial within the contexts of other recent efforts at memorializing and expands upon what the competition jurors defined as a paradigmatic shift in the way we understand the role of memorials in our culture. There is a broad and diverse audience of people touched by HIV/AIDS - architects, landscape artichects, designers, cultural historians, and others who will be reached by the contents of this publication.
