Design sets opposition between the explicit broken outlines of mounds and smooth, calm lines of the srurrounding nature. This static
dynamic gives a hint to the distinctive 
history and energy of the space. Thus, visibility of the burial place is underlinedRandomly inclined
faces create effect of 
ever-changing contours
 
Path from the parking leads only to the central platform, and not directly adjacent to the mounds above the graves. For service reasons each
of the graves connected with central square 
with a narrow service path. This solution should prevent penetration onto the mounds. Two
distant mounds will be visible from the bench on the platform.

Stella with a memorable text is a low concrete surface, that 
truncates the hill above the large grave, nearby the central site. Mounds are
made of the rammed earth and protect the remains. All t
hree mounds are covered with a large scale triangulation mesh. Path, central area
and the bench are subdivided following the same 
principle of triangulation.
