When I was an undergraduate engineering student about 20 years ago, one of the events covered in the engineering ethics class I took was the 1981 collapse of the skywalk at the Hyatt Regency in Kansas City, Missouri. Even 31 years after the collapse, the 114 people who were killed are remembered.
A nonprofit foundation was formed to create a memorial to the victims of the collapse. It is now only $150,000 from having enough to start construction of the memorial. It has also chosen a design.
