In 2021 one of the world’s largest and most important monuments was completed: the British Normandy Memorial honors the sacrifice of 22,442 men and women who lost their lives on some of the most momentous and symbolic days of the twentieth century. French civilian sacrifice is also remembered. Liam O’Connor designed and built an exceptional contemporary classical project within a landscaped masterplan of 20 hectares of unspoiled Norman landscape set in the historic battle space of June 6, 1944. A team of 500 including craftspeople from Europe and the USA contributed to this monument built in stone and destined to last for generations, providing a timeless and peaceful place of remembrance.
