dc.description.abstract Since 2018, Nicaragua has undergone a humanitarian crisis. The people have been subjected to widespread repression for opposing the state in protest, continuing a cycle of violence that has long plagued the nation’s history. With a new generation envisioning a nation that is free and democratic, a new memorial that echoes this vision is needed. As societies have become more inclusive in the last few decades, new forms of memorials have been conceived, tempering the dominance of traditional heroic monuments in the landscape. Examining case studies of how these new types of memorials approach envisioning alternative futures, a series of conceptual memorial spatializations is conceived. By using the series to approach the memorial design, the intention of this practicum is to explore the design of a memorial on the symbolically-charged site of Laguna de Tiscapa, Managua, once the epicentre of power and repression in the nation. en_US
