A team led by Coldefy & Associés has been selected to design the National Pulse Memorial & Museum in memory of the 49 victims of Orlando's Pulse nightclub shooting in 2016. The memorial comprises the preserved nightclub building with an adjacent open space that has been transformed as a place for gathering and celebration. There will also be a peaceful garden planted with 49 trees. A pool of water that runs from a fountain encircles the building and 49 lines, each a different colour, run along the basin of the public space to represent each of the victims. Around a third of a mile (0.5km) away, there will be a museum and educational centre about the tragedy that is intended to serve as a place for dialogue and a catalyst for positive change. The vertically sweeping, circular museum has a semi-transparent façade and rises as a series of community spaces in the form of vertical gardens and public plazas. A rooftop promenade provides views of the Memorial and the surrounding area.

Coldefy & Associés worked on the proposal with RDAI, Orlando-based HHCP Architects, Xavier Veilhan, dUCKS scéno, Agence TER and Prof Laila Farah. The team's proposal was selected ahead of 67 other submissions.

The memorial and museum are expected to open in 2022.
