Roma Design Group


ROMA designed the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial in Washington DC. The design builds on the landscape tradition of recent memorials and heightens our awareness of the unique qualities and symbolic relationships of the Capital Mall. The design is inspired by Dr. King's poetic use of language and powerful metaphorical references to the American landscape. The memorial commemorates Dr. King's contributions to the broadening of the meaning of democracy in America and seeks to engage visitors in the continued pursuit of positive social change and higher levels of achievement related to human rights and civil liberties.
