With cultural amnesia, and fast urbanism, preserving memory is becoming widely important. The project, as a continuation of the historic site, aims to exhibit the concept of memory, creating a journey from the haste of the city, towards a state of serenity through episodes of reminiscence. The concept of memory is shown in three ways: Memory storage, achieved through spaces of contemplation, and a slow-paced experience. Memory retrieval, as shown in outdoor and indoor viewpoints, that help in memory retrieval. And finally, memory creation by reconnecting people, nature, and past traces.
