When a project covers such sensitive issues as a place for memory, referring to state terrorism that happened in Argentina and its victims, the semantic aspect of architecture prevails over the morphology aspect. It was a big challenge to represent a place like this one, without falling into banality, and achieving a place for thought and consideration.
State terrorism is characterized by the use that the government makes of illegitimate methods designed to induce fear within a civilian population in order to achieve certain social, political or military objectives.
Taking this definition as a starting point, we tried to represent in the exhibition areas such concepts as "oppression", "terror", "imminence" and "asphyxia". In contrast, another space was designed, clear and calm, that honors the victims of the Process, and one last that looks to the future in a hopeful way. To achieve this, the studio took advantage of the programmatic requirement of dividing the permanent exhibitions into two and incorporated two other spaces within the building, and a fifth in the rear square.
