Lend Lease will build the only physical monument in Britain to commemorate the World War One. The contractor is building the £500,000 memorial arch free-of-charge at Folkestone. It will be erected over the route taken by 10 million British, Canadian, American, Australian and Asian troops between 1914 and 1918. The coastal town in Kent was the main port of embarkation to and from the trenches of the Western Front. Designers Foster Gearing plan to install wireless technology underneath the base so that at night black and white holograms of the men can be projected marching through the completed arch. The objective is to bring events to life for today’s younger generation by mirroring the emotional atmosphere of the war years.
