Located near the historic State House in Boston, the Garden of Peace commemorates victims of homicide. It is a symbol of the hope for peace, and a reminder of the lasting impact of violent acts. The lighting for the memorial encourages quiet contemplation. The central focus of the memorial is a dry streambed, filled with smooth stones engraved with the victims’ names.  A trickle of water appears, moving through the garden, and finally flows into to a pool with a soaring sculpture, representing hope. Lam Partners facilitated upgrading and retrofitting the existing light fixtures to LED, and added new LED fixtures for future signage locations.
