The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial celebrates the life and accomplishments of the 34th President of the United States.
Located at the centre of a 4-acre landscaped plaza, the Memorial features a commemorative large-scale stainless-steel tapestry, bronze sculptures, and inscription wall. Lighting is closely interwoven with the design by Gehry Partners. The stainless-steel woven tapestry, which lines one edge of the square, portrays an abstract depiction of the coast of Normandy on which American soldiers landed on D-Day. L’Observatoire International was commissioned for a full scope of lighting design: illuminating the plaza and its pathways, the memorial core, and surrounding streetlighting.
