Memorial Museum
Poland, Palmiry - selected
Idea behind the project was to cut out museum space with simplest architectural elements and minimal impact on the surrounding pine – birch forest. Museum building becomes a part of the kampinos forest screened of with steel and glass walls and covered with green flat roof made of smooth architectural concrete, it is an exhibition space among the trees – mute witnesses of the tragedy from the past. Rectangular block of the building is pierced with circular patios, which provide lighting between exhibitions, to spare and expose most precious tree specimens, which remind visitors of the context where the events of mass murder in Palmiry occurred.
