MH17 memorial and park
Amsterdam, 2015 - international competiton
A memorial is a space to remembrance and reunion. It is shown through the geometric form of the circle, highlighting its protective, introspective character and spiritual symbology. This proposal for mh17 memorial and park, develop the relation between two entities – park and tower – that appear to be separated but that complements themselves and interact without being physically connected from an exterior point of view. The park arises as the new island left in the middle of the canal, a circular platform that welcomes visitors coming by boat. The tower of the memorial besides pointing the new city cultural space illuminates itself at night, to maintain a continuous present memory of the victims, and at the same time keeps separate from the park showing the life path that was interrupted.
