Project: Komagata Maru Memorial

Location: British Columbia, Canada
Landscape Architect: LEES+Associates

The Komagata Maru Memorial commemorates a 1914 incident that witnessed 376 passengers from India escorted out of Vancouver's Coal Harbour aboard the steamship Komagata Maru.

Custom oversized wood benches were designed by LEES+Associates and created by Maglin as a place for people to gather and reflect while they experience the steel and photographic monuments.

The benches are designed to be minimalistic, to allow focus to remain on the memorial. Their oversized footprint also encourages the public to congregate together on the benches, reinforcing the monument's goal to reflect Canada's commitment to a nation where differences are respected.

Materials: Ipe wood, Steel frame
