Look: 6 designs compete to become Los Angeles’ memorial to Chinese massacre of 1871

The city of Los Angeles has selected the designs of six finalists in the competition to become the city’s memorial to the Chinese massacre of 1871. In August last year, Mayor Eric Garcetti, along with the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs, the office of Councilmember Kevin de León and El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, requested the public send in conceptual proposals to develop a memorial for the victims of the 1871 Chinese massacre. The massacre, which occurred on Oct. 24, 1871, saw a mob of hundreds murder at least 18 Chinese men in a racially motivated attack in the old Chinatown neighborhood.
