In all of her projects, Lin brings a contemporary perspective to the landscape by merging the rational order of high technology with organic forms. While Lin has created many socially motivated works of art, she is intent on avoiding didacticism and politics. Her monuments, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (1982) in Washington, D.C., and the Civil Rights Memorial (1988—1993) in Montgomery, Alabama, have been highly acclaimed for creating an intensely private experience in a public context. Lin has won numerous awards, including the Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
