Phillip Johnson – JFK Memorial (Dallas) December 11, 2015 Clayton Householder Leave a comment This is the JFK Memorial in Dallas, designed in 1970 and is an open tomb design. It is situated in downtown Dallas near where Kennedy was shot. It is made of vertical concrete walls, that make a sort of barricade around you. In the center of the memorial is a solid granite block with a message describing Kennedy’s thoughts. An informational yet attractive memorial with a lot of cool history behind it.
