The Experience

Location of Memorial In Memorial Park







 "The Teardrop"
        The central feature of the memorial's minimalist design - a carved-stone basin of water straddled by a tripod arrangement of three columns leaning into one another - is a single drop of water that falls from the highest point every 21 seconds, each "teardrop" representing one life lost. Over the course of one year, 1.5 million tears will fall in to the pool, the estimated number of victims of the Armenian Genocide.
