Memorial Hall is a quiet public space for rest and reflection. A Place to Remember: Spend a moment of quiet remembrance in the Memorial Hall. Notice that the concrete walls, grooved with large, offset rectangles, are reminiscent of the rows of white grave markers in Allied war cemeteries. The lone artifact is the headstone from the grave of Canada’s Unknown Soldier, a simple bench the only furniture. On Remembrance Day, at exactly 11:00 a.m., sunlight shines through a single window to frame perfectly the headstone, lest we forget.
