World War I Memorial Winning Design The design team of the national World War I Memorial in Washington, D.C., talked about the ideas and symbolism behind its winning entry. The memorial commemorates the centennial of World War I and the nearly five million Americans who served. Joe Weishaar, a 25-year-old architect-in-training, was named a finalist in an international competition to design the memorial.
