The Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition (RTFC) seeks entries for a two-stage international design competition to honor the victims of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and its legacy.
The memorial will be located in New York City on the exterior of the building, where this historic fire occurred. In telling the story of the Triangle Fire and offering tribute to the victims, immigrant workers, women activists and social reformers, the memorial should both educate and inspire. This memorial should recall not just the tragedy and every worker who perished, but also reflect the unique importance of the many workers’ rights movements, safety laws, and social welfare policies that resulted from this fire.
