Initial inspiration originated by the tip of the airplane wings.The wing became a monumental space that cuts the island in two with all names of the victims engraved on the inside. The monument is an elongated corridor with intensely narrow width and big height.The experience of the monument escalates with controlled access of sunlight and the sound of water from underneath. The exit from the wing brings the visitor back to hope and optimism.The geometry of the landscape relates to a natural flow, which comes as a reminder of how vulnerable the human essence is. Creating a dialog between the monument and the river the landscape allows the tide to flood and reshape it.
