UAP：这是阿拉伯联合酋长国（阿联酋）第一个为英勇的士兵和其他为国家服务的阿联酋人所建立的纪念公园，该公园荣获2017年美国文化建筑类建筑奖。位于Wahat Al Karama公园中心的纪念碑是由英国艺术家Idris Khan设计完成。
阿布扎比王储、阿联酋武装部队副最高指挥官Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan殿下委托建造了这个公园。公园位于阿布扎比大清真寺和阿联酋武装部队总司令部之间的Wahat Al Karama，意为“尊严的绿洲”，占地面积4.6万平方米。
UAP：The first Memorial Park for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) celebrating the brave soldiers and other Emiratis serving the Nation has won the 2017 American Architecture Prize – Cultural Architecture category. An artwork by British artist Idris Khan forms the Memorial at the heart of Wahat Al Karama park.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces commissioned the park. Symbolically located between Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the General Headquarters of the UAE Armed Forces, Wahat Al Karama, which means ‘oasis of dignity’, covers an area of 46,000 square meters.
The Memorial comprises 31 aluminium standing tablets, each 23 metres in height. Each tablet was carefully handcrafted by UAP’s design and fabrication team. The 31 tablets are made of a total of 850 cast aluminium panels. UAP’s team used a hand painting technique to achieve a delicate gradient of colour on the surface that captures the light rather than reflecting it.（Quoted from Idris Khan’s comments）
The tablets lean on each other to represent unified strength, power and pride among soldiers, loved ones and their country. With its impressive scale, the Memorial represents the eternal martyr, a place of reassurance and defiance. Its two front tablets stand vertically and are intended to evoke a sense of humility when approached. （Quoted from Idris Khan’s comments）
The Pavilion of Honour is a circular structure located at the end of the visitor’s journey. In its centre are seven standing glass panels surrounded by a water feature, representing the seven emirates of the UAE. The circular internal wall is cladded with 2,800 aluminium plates made from reclaimed metal from armoured vehicles used in service, which are inscribed with the names of the UAE’s heroes. （Quoted from Daniel Tobin’s comments）
