The National Holocaust Monument was designed to be an exper- iment rather than an educational exhibition. The subtle balance between severe, oppressive architecture and the sky’s comforting presence, in a landscape that is both arid and airy, contributes to its finesse, allowing room for contemplation and reflection.
Hard, without being austere, the jury appreciated the exemplary contribution of a memory that includes experimenting with the body, spirit and emotion. Architectural poetry, the delivered mes- sage is powerful and its sculptured design is as provocative as it is artistic. More than a multidisciplinary creation, it is also a multidisciplinary experience, full of emotions.
