11March memorial

estudioSIC as Architects

The memorial is material and its construction, in order to enclosure the void. The structure of the Monument for the victims of the terror attacks in Madrid is a worldwide novelty. For the first time massive glass blocks are connected to form a structure using a transparent adhesive and no additional mechanical elements. The outer layer of the 11 meter tall monument consists out of approximate 15100 massive glass blocks, that are glued using just a transparent adhesive. The internal layer is made out of a over pressure stabilized ETFE foil. The interior void is the remembrance atmosphere space.
