Nikkei Internment Memorial

The Nikkei Internment Memorial, located in Richmond, BC is a public art and contemplative garden space that honours the 75th anniversary of the evacuation of the Nikkei community in 2018, and the 70th anniversary of their return in 2019. Each shape, texture and detail of the subtle landscape concept and artwork tells a story including untold history from the Nikkei themselves. The designers of this space, Hapa Collaborative, engaged us to highlight the space with video and photos to show off the project features and details that make this space what it is. Check out the end results below.
