Project Description:

The Komagata Maru Memorial has transformed an underutilized area of a downtown waterfront park in to a unique and meaningful public space. We were instrumental in the selection of a location with historic relevance to the incident: a site with panoramic views towards the place where the steamship lay at anchor one kilometer off-shore from May to July 1914. LEES + Associates led the public engagement process and achieved consensus on a design for this highly controversial monument and its placement at a visually prominent location.
