New Identity for Canadian War Museum.
In May 2005, Canadian War Museum relocated to its current location in Lebreton Flats. The new building features numerous symbolic features, one of them being the Memorial Hall. It is a square room where the grave stone of an unnamed soldier is displayed. It is a place of silence and self-contemplation. It symbolizes memorial for not only those who served in WWI and WWII, but all the wars.
On the 11:00 AM of Memorial Day, November 11th, a beam of sunlight shines through a narrow slit, luminating the the gravestone. The new identity combines the overhead imagery of the Memorial Hall with the message for the future generations.
