The memorial gate
The composition process to design a monument for Holocaust victims is inspired by disposition of commemorative plates housed in the floor of the Jewish area in Rome. The road surface is made from a homogeneous texture of cobblestones arranged according to an orthogonal grid, whose continuous repetition is interrupted implantation of plaques dedicated to a single victim. Walking in the Jewish area, you can notice groups of bright stones compose abstract shapes that look like architectural concepts, and all of them are built by stones square. The project proposal is based on the desire to decode this random process and create a memorial space built on the simple modules repetition, each one is dedicated to a single victim.
