'Memorial' is a memorial structure for fallen police officer Harry Davis Jr. of the MTPD. The design comprises of a bold surface structure which forms an elegant formal gradient, providing a strong, curios, and visually pleasing addition to the building. The design is conceived as a precious dynamic motion in both its sweeping, curvilinear design and its function as a representative of memory and cultural synthesis.

In daylight the artwork appears as a multiplicity of metallic surfaces networks, with settle reflective qualities, offering views from the under passing adjacent walkways and while approaching the building by car, bus or bicycle. The perception of the artwork creates a dynamic ambiance providing a inspiring experience for all visitors and commuters. By night the project assumes an elegant, sculptural presence on its site. It is lit up and made vivid in its internal patterning. The structure opens its additional qualities, displaying its beautiful internal world through light, color and shadow.
