298 monolithic stone volumes, which incerase their height, forming an inclined surface, compose the memorial structure. One monolith for each person lost. Between them there is a grid of narrow paths, that lead to a central glade, which is shaped like the imprint of the airplane as it appeared on the radar. The memorial is surrounded by a park that overlooks the river and the city beyond, consisting a place to value life, forgive and forget, in comparison to the memorial, which is the place of remembrance and introspection.


Architecture emerges out of careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes.
