Memorial | Public Space | Competition | 2nd Prize | Berlin-Mitte, Germany


Competition for a memorial to the victims of the communist dictatorship in the SBZ and former GDR.

A swamp in the middle of Berlin? It seems absurd. But only a strong image creates the necessary tension in such a context. A swamp is a sensitive ecosystem. A habitat that needs to be taken care of. A place that develops and is involved in processes. This place gives us a task. It requires awareness. It requires care. A place that permanently confronts us with the question of whether we want to take it upon ourselves to make an effort.
