Well ... any contribution deserves to be lloked at (some would argue not but as usally said, then, how to know).

On the first hand your drawings are meaningful to transmit some basic aspects of your idea, yet they may fail to convey the kind of materiality and materialization you have in mind. This might change the appreciation of those looking, and so my own view.

My main comment is that your design doesn't look western enough for one of the places where western ways are more entirely implemented. Of course one can see you are aware of that from your text (unitarism) and read about the oriental influx in your drawings, even if you want with some FLLW inspirationm yet as I put elsewhere, some things don't fit at some places.

In any case, may more things need be addressed, place precisely between others, and the whole treatment of the site and space. In commenting at this level of things, we only have your sketches, and so we may miss a lot of what you would build in truth, what could change our views.

So in the end I would still stay considering more designs in wait of one more fitting to those living and those dead, and to USA and the world.
