Memorial Park in Pasadena is the proposed site of an Armenian Genocide memorial

PASADENA—The Pasadena Armenian Genocide Memorial Committee is seeking qualified candidates to submit memorial design proposals for the architectural design of the Armenian Genocide Memorial to be proposed in Memorial Park in the City of Pasadena, California.

The City of Pasadena was incorporated in 1886 and is renowned for its history and architecture, art and culture, science and technology and noted educational institutions.

Memorial Park, previously known as the Library Park, the prospective future home of the Armenian Genocide memorial, is located at 85 E. Holly Street, at the south-east corner of Raymond Avenue and Walnut Street in the City of Pasadena. The park is approximately 5 and ¼ acres in size and contains various memorials, an amphitheater, play equipment, and expansive open area.

A Request for Proposal (RFP) detailing the City’s policies and guidelines for the proposed project, design specifications and submittal requirements is available to those interested in submitting a memorial design. Please contact Shoghig Yepremian to obtain copies of these documents.
