The project activates and foments the use of the site by creating new open public spaces and reinforcing the city views and existing landscape. The memorial promotes social interaction through the use of programmatic intersections generated by the space's design. These gaps contain the program of the memorial: an amphitheatre, a playground, shaded open spaces and a mixed-use gallery underneath the amphitheatre.
