Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial

Bainbridge Island, WA

Honoring Americans forced from their homes during WWII.

Working in close collaboration with Bainbridge Island community members, EDX designed the exhibit experience for a memorial wall, part of a larger site designed by Seattle architects Jones + Jones. The wall commemorates the strength and perseverance of 272 Japanese Americans who were forcibly removed from their homes during World War II. Located on a site of historical significance, this memorial marks the path they walked to the ferry they boarded on March 30, 1942.
