National Pulse Memorial & Museum


Walter P Moore is providing structural and enclosure engineering for a memorial, museum and survivors walk to honor the victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting which occurred on Jun 12, 2016. The campus also includes a parking garage.

The design includes several pieces that come together to form a community presence and dedicated reflective, interactive, and connective spaces. The National Pulse Memorial has the focus of serving as a quiet and peaceful garden setting, and is set to include different symbolic features such as 49 trees, 49 color lines, and a reflecting pool surrounding the Pulse building, to honor the 49 victims lost in the events of the Pulse shooting.

A separate 7-level museum will be erected in a shape representing a growing flower. The museum will serve as an interactive center to learn, gather, and host community programming. It includes an indoor amphitheater, exhibits, a board room, conference rooms and a restaurant. It will be crowned by a rooftop deck with an event space and access to elevated, circular pathways overlooking the SoDo neighborhood.
