91-years-old architect Frank Gehry to unveil Eisenhower Memorial in Washington DC
Hosted by Madeleine Brand Aug. 27, 2020 Design
 

The nation is having a debate about monuments, who gets to be memorialized, and how. Against that backdrop, a new memorial is set to be unveiled next month in Washington D.C. It honors former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The memorial took two decades to build.

It was designed by Frank Gehry, who had to make big changes to his original, modern concept after loud objections from groups wanting a more traditional approach.

KCRW’s Frances Anderton recently talked with Gehry about the Eisenhower monument.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.
