Death is the line, the boundary beyond which everything is summarized. The memory of the dead lives until it is being interacted with. The main idea of the project is that the place of memory is intended for living people. It is necessary to interact with the memory so that the feat of our compatriots is never forgotten.

This is a place for reflection. So to speak, a secret non-secret place.

Functionally the object is a square of a non-symmetrical shape to be contrasted to the symmetric Nezalezhnosti Square. Functionally square consists of memory zone and quiet recreation zone.

Caption

he memory zone is a green part of the square with two alleys, where glass steles with names of war heroes and recreation places between trees are installed. It is planned to be planted with small trees or shrubs and forbs.

Caption

The zone consists of three parts. The outside of large parts is raised by 1250 mm to create an inclined relief. The alley surface is a water-permeable surface with the inclusions of the shining stone. Stones charge from the sun and shine at night, which is similar to Milky Way (Chumatskyi Shlyah in Ukrainian). After all, our ancestors believed – the stars are the souls. Also in the memory zone are installed male and female silhouettes, reminding about the dead. Technically, it is installations with silhouettes made from dark glass. There are the smoke machine and lighting in the holder area. Heroes do not die until we remember them. All elements of the zone improvement are designed for active interaction. At night there is lighting from the ground sphere lamps.

Caption

The quiet recreation zone is a part of the section from the south and the west sides. On this area there is paving from granite tiles. Also there are benches from metal and concrete. Existing ventilation is decorated with green walls.

Caption

On the eastern side of the site there is bicycle parking.

Caption

The project includes the possibility of moving of persons with impaired mobility: the width of the main roads is not less than 1.5 m, the coverage of the recreation zone and alleys is hard. The main alley leads to the yard facade of Khmelnytskyi Regional State Administration, where the elevator is planned to be built.
