Ronstan Tensile Architecture was honored to be included in a recent memorial project in Colorado. The Colorado Freedom Memorial is a beautiful and timeless way of honoring Colorado’s fallen heroes. Ronstan Tensile Architecture worked with clients Classic Metals and JR Butler Inc.
The glass panel design of the memorial was derived through both symbolic and representative metaphors which intends to create a dynamic experience for visitors.
“Glass was chosen as the dominant material of the wall for its subtle, reflective qualities. The delicate nature of the glass speaks to the tragedy and loss that has occurred, while observers look through their own reflections to the names of the dead, making the true impact of the loss more measurable. To create a powerful moment of reunification, the names are all carefully and uniformly laid out in a very rigid format and accompanied by the image of the person left behind.” – Kristoffer Kento, Designer
The Architects utilized our slender Ronstan ARS3 Stainless Steel Rods. These rods are ideal for glass applications as they do not take away from the aesthetics of the structure due to their minimalistic presence and complimentary ability to hold large loads. These qualities made the ARS3 the perfect solution for such an artistically driven structure.
