Tsunami Memorial

The idea of the masterplan is to design three different sculptures inside the competition boundaries to create a space of nature and architecture, of silence and contemplation, science and culture, artificial and natural. The sculptures will be a tower (Museum/Memorial), a platform (Visitor Center, Learning Center, Conference area) and a cave (parking). The tower placed at the coast looking like a lighthouse over the Andaman sea and the beautiful surrounding green of the Khao Lak-Lam Roo National park. The platform in the south west of the site is embed in the trees and lifted up from the ground to preserve the nature. The parking-cave between the Visitor Center and Highway No.4 keeping the cars from the site-surface under the ground.
