Holocaust Memorial

Designed by Peter Eisenman, this vast space is covered by huge concrete blocks which are a memorial to the murdered Jews of europe. There are 2,711 concrete slabs which are arranged in a grid pattern on uneven ground. As you walk into the centre, you are surrounded by 15'9". This was designed to give an uneasy, confusing atmosphere which is definitely present. This was a very impressive place to visit and during the day I can imagine that the feelings change down to light and shadow.
