The Paneriai Memorial
The Paneriai Memorial stands on the site of mass massacre and graves of the victims of 1941 – 1944 executions, and most of those killed by the Nazis were Jews. Although the project of 4 PLIUS architects team designed for the contest did not receive the first prize, it did make a sharp impression. The project features the universally recognisable signs, texture, and lightning which help create the mood suitable for such memorials. Perhaps the most valuable in the project are the general plan solutions; seen as the full picture only from the bird eye view, together they make up a structure which in turn becomes the project’s mark valuable both in terms of aesthetic and functional point of view.
