Hart Island Hope Memorial

Dr. Chris Brisbin

Studio Coordinator and Program Director of Architecture

Memorials are sites of memory – of grief, loss, and fear– but most of all, they are signifiers of love, resilience, and hope. The HartIsland Hope Memorial studio explores the design of memorialisation spaces for over one million New York citizens buried in unmarked mass graves across the island.
