Description: Tangshan Memorial Park focuses on the perception of time and its relation to memory. The park's landscape rings are treated with different materials that relate to different speeds. The softer the surface, the slower the pace. Walking along one path in an uninterrupted landscape setting keeps you moving at the same speed. Cutting through the rings and experiencing nature change dramatically from ring to ring is equated with the change of time zones as you move inward toward the center of the memorial.
