Warsaw Insurgents Cemetery

competition, 2nd prize

The new Memorial Room dedicated to the fallen victims of the Warsaw Uprising will be built in the Warsaw Insurgents Cemetery, which is located around the old clay pit. At the cemetery there is an existing monument - a small hill. It was erected with the ashes of the citizens who died during the Warsaw Uprising. The cemetery is not commonly known. It is also not well visible from the road. The designed building will become a gate marking the entrance to the cemetery and pointing to the old monument. It will be an arcade that misses the continuity of columns. In the centre, where there are no supports, the concrete roof will slightly bend. The Memorial Room that keeps the memory of the people who died in the Uprising will be placed in the ground under the arcade.
