Maya Lin: Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Looking over all of the amazing work that Maya Lin has produced, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial stood out the most to me. The memorial consists of three separate parts such as the Three Servicemen Memorial, the Vietnam Woman's Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial which is known as the best area of the memorial. One of the walls are facing the Washington Monument and the other is in the direction of the Lincoln Memorial. When looking at the wall you can see your reflection simultaneously with the engraved names, which is symbolic for bringing the past and present together.
