A national memorial for the victims of MH370 will be built at Perth’s Elizabeth Quay with the aim of “engendering a sense of peace” at a monument overlooking the water.
Plans for a memorial were first revealed in 2014 and a tender has now been released for expressions of interest for its construction, said TVNZ New Zealand.
The tender calls for the memorial to express emotion and “reflect upon personal loss while engendering a sense of peace”.
Given Chinese cultural sensitivities, the memorial will reference “those lost” rather than those who died.
“A list of names is not considered appropriate as the circumstances are unresolved,” the tender reads.
The memorial will be co-funded by the state and federal governments, with Elizabeth Quay selected because it is easily accessible and “provides a quiet and contemplative place that has a panoramic view of the Swan River and Kings Park”.
