AN ARCHITECTURAL FEAT


The unique architecture of the Ring of Remembrance, which is set on the side of the hill, is the work of Philippe Prost. The Ring has a radius of more than 345 metres, including 56 metres hanging over the side of the hill. This unique shape evokes fraternity, reminiscent of a circle of children holding hands. At the same time, the overhang recalls the fragile balance of the peace that was won. Looking at the final monument, the technical complexities command admiration and reflection.
