The first one is the memorial, which was built as a tribute to John F. Kennedy for what he had given to the USA. Located in Dallas, Texas, this place was built on June 24, 1970 and it has become an important part of the city’s urban landscape and of course, a cultural heritage. This building is designed by the architect, Philip Johnson, using a cenotaph or “open tomb,” which symbolizes the freedom of the President’s spirit. This tomb is a square and roofless room with the 30-feet height and 50-by-50 feet width sitting gracefully in the middle of the block. The openings of this squared-white building are facing the north and the south.
You can enter this room whenever you are done with the short walk up on a slight concrete, embossed with concrete squares. You will then confront the low-hewn granite square in which the name of John Fitzgerald Kennedy is carved right inside of this roofless room. His name is painted gold in order to capture the light from the pale concrete floor and the white floating column walls. This building is intended for reflection and remembrance of John F. Kennedy.
