To say that the planned Eisenhower Memorial has been surrounded by controversy would definitely be an understatement, with everyone from the family of the 34th President, the National Capital Planning Commission, and Congress weighing in on the proposed designs from STARchitect Frank Gehry. Not much has really changed from the original design to these latest renderings released by NCPC, and they still include the controversial mesh tapestries.
Even with all the controversy, the hope is still to open the completed memorial on Memorial Day 2015, but it remains to be seen what it ends up looking like.
Check out some more renderings after the jump including what those mesh tapestries may end up looking like…
