The Tri An Foundation and Competition are pleased to announce the stage one winners of the Tri An Monument Competition!

128 entries from 29 countries were carefully evaluated by an internationally influential jury panel composed of Susan Rademacher, HON. ASLA (Landscape Lecturer, Writer, Curator, Consultant & Designer) Parks Curator, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy; Yung Nguyen (Immigrant & Successful Entrepreneur) Founder and Chairman of the Tri Ân Foundation; P.Q. Phan (Composer, Musician, & Educator) Professor of Music at Indiana University; and David M. Biagi (Architect) Director of the University of Kentucky School of Architecture.

 

The overriding purpose of this proposed monument is to honor and express deep gratitude for the millions of Americans and Vietnamese who fought side-by-side to stop communist aggression and give the South Vietnamese people their freedom.

 

The winning submission will be selected from one of the three finalists and announced on January 11, 2017.
