MONUMENTS OF THE WORLD One of the most recent monuments to gather so much controversy has been X, which opened in 2004. The controversies of this monument lay almost entirely with the choice of design and location. Dropped into the national mall between the Washington Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial (at the Rainbow Pool), the memorial is a rather large 7.4 acres in total area consumed. This interruption of the line of sight between the two famous landmarks drew a large target from national mall conservation groups, who remarked that the place had not just been famous for the landmarks, but also for the events that had happened there, such as the Million Man March and numerous protests .Its pure size is one of the reasons architecture critics loathed its designs so much. It was argued by several critics that the design was straight out of same books that the dictators America was fighting would've picked up for inspiration. What is X?
