The main specialty of Baltic Way is togetherness. To reflect this idea on the project, spaces where people can spend time together, talk to each other, enjoy the scenery, make sportive activities, make presentations, and watch movies at night, etc. have been adopted. Our proposal is not merely a library to enter but a platform on which urban life keeps continuing thus a building which integrates with the city.

The definition of memory is essential when we talk about a memorial: it is a monument of the remembrance of people and events and at the same time it represents a universal message directed to the collective consciousness. A space that doesn’t allow you to forget, that in our competition, becomes the acknowledgment of the Shoah: a massive genocide during the Second World War.

When a big tree in the forest dies, an organic process that creates what we know as a clearing begins – open room in the otherwise dense forest. We want to develop the memorial on Utøya as such a clearing; forming a clear spot and highlight all the beautiful landscape qualities that are already in place and in contact with the surrounding environment.

A brand new contemporary space for the farewell of the deceased rests regally between meadows and trees similar to austere and silent presences. A pure parallelepiped volume, covered in white rough plaster, seems like levitating in mid-air, rising light and free from the ground.

“More than 400 Nepalese migrant workers have died on Qatar’s building sites as the Gulf state prepares to host the World Cup in 2022.
The grim statistic comes from the Pravasi Nepali Co-ordination Committee, a respected human rights organisation which compiles lists of the dead using official sources in Doha. It will pile new pressure on the Qatari authorities – and on football’s world governing body, Fifa – to curb a mounting death toll that some are warning could hit 4,000 by the time the 2022 finals take place.15 February

A thick, dense and kind blanket, trimmed off to the necessary minimum, to transform a stark interior into a space for the people.
The intervention takes place in the “Castillo de El Real de la Jara”, a fortress dating from the 14th century, located on the highest point of the hill right north of the village, in the county and Natural Park of the North Range of Sevilla. The commission was made by the Diputación Provincial de Sevilla, and has been funded by the FEDER Operational program for Andalucía for Sustainable development and social cohesion project for the North Range and South Range of Sevilla.

Ahn Jung-geun was a Korean independence activist, nationalist, and pan-Asianist. The Ahn Jung-geun Memorial Hall, rebuilt after the old one was demolished in 2009, is nestled in a small plaza behind the original building. Next to the site are the remnants of an old war shrine where Japanese people worshipped their warlords and spirits during the colonial era. Having dug up the age-old reminder of disgrace and humiliation, the new building for Ahn Jung-geun (1879-1910), a patriot and martyr, stands triumphantly over the site.

The memorial honors the 987,000 men and women from the State of Illinois who served this country during World War II. This new memorial was planned for an irregular site shaped by the formal dictates of two previously built memorials – the Illinois Vietnam Veterans Memorial (1988) and the Illinois Korean War Memorial (1996).
