Description

Translation of the inscription:

In this area during the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, the 4th group of National Army (Armia Krajowa, AK) "Gurt" engaged in fierce battles for the main railway terminal and surrounding facilities, holding stretches of Marszałkowska, Żelazna, Złota, and Chmielna Streets until the uprising's end. Hundreds of soldiers fell in these battles. The wounded were treated within the walls of this school.
Comrades in arms.

This project was funded by Bernard and Anne Spitzer Travel Fellowship for research projects involving travel abroad and incorporating the study of architecture, landscape architecture, or urbanism.
I chose to study Holocaust Memorials due to the range of projects, approaches in design aesthetic, and reactions. The projects demonstrate how architecture can, is, should be, and could be integrated into our understanding of landscape. Issues of symbolism, perception, and procession will be assessed along site – definition of landscape is modified by historic events and memories. I hope to raise awareness about how architecture can be more effective in relating to landscape: history and memory. Since site retain the ruin and intervention of human culture, it is important to understand how to bridge the past, present, and future.
