This undated handout image provided by Gehry Partners, LLP shows a view of commemorative sculptures, representing Eisenhower’s achievements, as visitors approach the Eisenhower Memorial core in Washington. Architect Frank Gehry is revising the design for a memorial honoring President Dwight D. Eisenhower near the National Mall after objections have delayed the project. On Thursday, Gehry's team will propose eliminating metal tapestries on the sides of the memorial square, along with some columns. The designers are trying to win approval from the National Capital Planning Commission. The federal panel voted to reject a previous design in April.
