My favorite work -- although nobody else liked it yet:

Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Washington, D.C.



"Walking through this park, the memorial appears as rift in the earth.
A long, polished, black stone wall, emerging from and receding into
the earth.  Approaching the memorial, the ground slopes gently
downward and the low walls emerging on either side, growing out of the
earth, extend and converge at a point below and ahead.  Walking into
this grassy site contained by the walls of the Memorial, we can barely
make out the carved names upon the Memorial's walls.  These names,
seemingly infinite in number, convey the sense of overwhelming
numbers, while unifying these individuals into a whole.  The Memorial
is composed not as an unchanging monument, but as a moving composition
to be understood as we move into and out of it.  The passage itself is
gradual; the descent to the origin slow, but it is at the origin that
the Memorial is to be fully understood.  At the intersection of these
walls, on the right side, is carved the date of the first death.  it
is followed by the names of those who died in the war, in
chronological order.  These names continue on this wall appearing to
recede into the earth at the wall's end.  The names resume on the left
wall as the wall emerges from the earth, continuing back to the origin
where the date of the last death is carved."
