Description Change this

Architect takes us into the memory with the formation of the path and not the body of the monument. It is a poetics of decomposition stone wall as a symbolic border between life and death. Linear design of the central path is ending with the extension (square) and an obelisk, which is located in the axis of the lowest point of the hinterland. Along the path we find linearly parallel and transverse lined plates with the names of the victims. The central location of the settlement occupies a stone shed with mosaic of Marij Pregelj. It should be noted at extremely carefully designed details (front doors, paving and wall structure).
