PIRANESI MENTION 2015

The Deads of the University: World War II. Memorial, Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Humanities, Budapest, 2015
architects Farkas Albert, Ildikó Bujdosó, Dénes Fajcsák, Eszter Lukács, Ákos Polgárdi, János Róth DLA, Levente Szabó DLA and Nóra Szigeti, MM Group and Hetedik Studio
 
This memorial very powerfully, but discreetly embeds within the building fabric of the university buildings the name register of 198 Jewish teachers and students killed during World War II. The project avoids the big gesture and is an exemplar in the art of ‘Less is More’. In spite of its length of 280m, this memorial remains invisible to those who do not wish to see or find, but it evokes the most powerful memory for those who wish to know and find.
