How does design, or anything for that matter, attempt to answer the unanswerable? The proposal for Columbine ultimately ended up being just that: a series of conceptual sketches and notes that, in truth, had no resolution. They hinted only at an idea of a place with a tranquil, yet absent presence, metaphorically offering more questions for the visitor than answers along a self-guided journey of questioning and searching. Honorable Mention was awarded for the entry proposal in 2000.
