Each year more than 1.6 million people visit the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial and Visitor Center to gain a better understanding of the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. In 2002 the Navy and the National Park Service made plans to demolish the existing facilities and to build a new state-of-the-art Visitor Center on the site. As a consultant to the design architect, Portico Group, Mason Architects participated in all phases of the design process and was responsible for most of the construction documents.
