Memorial Maidan

The memorial near Maidan square in Kiev serves to commemorate the revolution in Ukraine, in which more than 100 people died in February 2014. The memorial design by blauraum forms a spatial framework that allows its visitors to actively participate. It follows the topography of the avenue of the "Heavenly Hundred Heroes" and develops a narrative with different atmospheric spaces along the ascending path, which are filled by the visitors themselves.

The element of design played a major role in the revolution. Artfully erected ramparts and barricades attracted a great deal of media attention. Likewise, the mourning after the bloody days of the Maidan could be experienced everywhere through spontaneous memorials erected by the citizens of Kiev. Therefore, the draft intends to make this creative will and the commitment of the citizens an essential part of the memorial.

The memorial itself consists of 14 frame elements that stand on a bed of light gravel. A slightly elevated path leads straight up the hill. The path is not only a symbol of the activists who fought their way up the hill, it also describes the chronological sequence of events. Thus the frames can serve as information carriers to graphically represent and locate the course of the revolution.
