The Lost Shtetl in Šeduva, Lithuania by LAHDELMA & MAHLAMÄKI ARCHITECTS

Monday, June 25th, 2018

Article source: LAHDELMA & MAHLAMÄKI ARCHITECTS

The Lost Shtetl is at the same time a memorial and a museum. The entity is a remembrance of a lost village, but also a universal interpretation of community living and about the physical environment, where we all have the right to live. No other goals have been set to the symbolism of the building –the village itself will tell the story of life.

Mount Herzl Memorial in Jerusalem, Israel by Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

Article source: Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

The Mount Herzl Memorial Hall is a unique place of commemoration. It’s raison d’etre is to be a memorial for all the fallen soldiers of the country, and thus contains all their names.

It is a project of hope for peaceful times.

Set in a calm biblical scenery, but adjacent to the nowadays busy streets of Jerusalem, the space is isolated and quiet. It was excavated in the mountain to form an intimate space for both personal and collective experiences of commemoration. Above the hall, the mountain is reconstructed of curved topographies made of Jerusalem stone. An undulating funnel-shaped formation of bricks opens the excavated hall to the sky. Its irregular vortex shape floods the space with ever- changing natural light.

The War Memorial in New Delhi, India by Design Forum International

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Article source: Design Forum International 

The architectural construct of the national war memorial calls for the visual grandeur befitting a national monument and enmesh seamlessly with the magnificent India gate and the traditional Indian chattri. The visual grammar, vocabulary and material palette must be drawn entirely from lutyens’ architectural style; it should be likeAnother Avatar of the Lutyens’ Order’. Equally, the experience intends to invoke in the visitor, the spirit of patriotism, allowing him to pause by creating a controlled visual field and guiding him/her to slowly transition towards a silent, solemn experience of respect and gratitude towards the brave soldiers who put ‘the nation before self’.

Bunurong Memorial Park in Bangholme, Australia by BVN

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: BVN

Bunurong Memorial Park aims to be a leader in providing memorable settings for a wide range of celebratory, reflective and commemorative events and a valuable community asset.

Working with Aspect Studios, BVN designed a set of distinctive gardens arranged as a connected suite of intimate and public spaces bound by ‘quiet’ buildings with transparent portals that open directly to the garden setting. This series of garden vistas and rooms are in turn linked to the existing lake, now reimagined as the ‘heart’ of a broader network that will include future stages. The widest possible range of reflective and celebratory events, are supported through buildings that include chapels, function rooms, café, florist and service centre. A particularly characteristic part is the pedestrian commemoration bridge which connects the central gardens to the curvilinear outdoor chapel which opens directly to the lake.

Giuseppe Garibaldi Memorial in Caprera (Olbia-Tempio), Italy by PIETRO CARLO PELLEGRINI ARCHITETTO

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Article source: PIETRO CARLO PELLEGRINI ARCHITETTO

Promoted by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers for of the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, “Sites of Memory” was a project aimed at rehabilitating several historically significant sites across the peninsula and making them again part of a tangible collective memory. The rehabilitation of the nineteenth century Arbuticci Fort in Caprera, up to the Second World War the headquarters of the military operational defence base of the Italian Navy, was one of such plans. The restoration and preservation design of a site on the island where Garibaldi spent the last years of his life was developed as a dialogue between a contemporary approach and the context’s historical and architectural tradition.

Luther Memorial Berlin in Germany by Zeller & Moye

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Article source: Zeller & Moye

A new memorial for Martin Luther will be constructed in central Berlin at the former Neuer Markt next to the St.Marienkirche. The winning proposal of the international competition ‘Luther-Denkmal 2017’ refers in its spatial arrangement to the historical Luther memorial that was destroyed during WWII. Like a mirror image of the original memorial, a negative volume is embossed into the ground. It points to Berlin’s history and emphasises the importance of public space for the society. Looking closely at the steps and the edge detailing, the original shapes of the former memorial become visible as negative imprints. However, the new memorial is not at all a reconstruction of the old one, but presents itself as a contemporary and sculpturally composed memorial in its own right.
