Symbolic form of WWII Museum references physical scenarios of past battles

Bulgaria-based design studio Dizarh presents designs for a WWII Museum in Poland, explaining the concept thus:

"The idea for a Museum of the Second World War embodies the threads of life, occupation, war, wounds and death. The interweaving and clash of these key threads generates spaces and creates trends and focuses.

The spirit of oppression and decay is enclosed inside the Museum space, surrounded by thick walls - a kind of a shield which holds attacks and repressions back. This flesh is at points symbolically cut through by a passing trench, by open wounds after enemy strikes, by the gashes that are in the limelight of surfaces.

The interweaving of the current exhibitions inside with the surrounding landscape and existing architecture underlies the main idea of this modern museum which will become a member of Gdansk’s special buildings, alongside the Church and the City Hall."
