▼项目概览,project overview

▼墓碑近景,a close view to the tomb

墓的整体结构和外形包含两层意思:像一滴眼泪,也像一个问号。呼格冤案是各界关注十八年多得以平反的事件,表达疑问是我们设计的初衷,化作一滴眼泪是我们的悲伤,运用场地与曲线建立的关系,形成了一个既像问号又像一滴眼泪的形态。

The sculptural form of the tomb contains two meanings: like a tear, like a question mark. Huge’s injustice case was concerned by all fields of society been awaiting for over 18 years to redress. Expressing doubts is the original intention of our design, and our sorrow leads the design form turns into a tear.

墓的轮廓由一条线索串起,而后化作一个圆,有圆满之意。外轮廓的锈钢板承载着记忆,保持着一种自然的状态随时间发生色彩和质感的变化,从而将时间这样的一个无法捕捉的概念视觉化,用温暖的色彩守护着墓碑,缩影出这段历史。围绕墓碑的三种颜色的石材寓意公、检、法三种权利,最外环刻有事件内容和社会各界呼声的钢板表达了第四方维权,新闻及公众的声音。

The outline of the tomb shapes like a ribbon leading to a clue of the case, and finally end into a circle, in Chinese culture completing to a circle means satisfactory. The rust steel plate at the contour memorizing the natural state of color and texture which changes over time, and visualizing an uncatchable concept of time, guarding the tombstone with warm, and revealing the past.The three colors of paving stone around the tombstone symbolize three parties include the Police, the Procuratorate, and the court. The outermost ring engraved with the content of the past and voices of the public, expressed the fourth party’s rights( public/media).

为表达对逝者及蒙古民族的尊重,设计师预留了公众参与的空间,在墓地的外围,采用了特有的蒙古族祈福方式,来访者可在墓地的周围摆放石块,就像祭敖包摆石头那样,从而垒出敖包作为祈福的方式。也就是说,每一位来参观呼格墓地和悼念呼格吉勒图的人都可以从外边带来一块石头,摆放在胡格墓地的围墙外,久而久之把公众的声音、思想、祝愿用敖包的形式呈现出来。

Obo mound is a traditional Mongolian culture for people to bless the departed by stacking stones into a monument. We reserved a space around the tomb for public participation, where visitors could take a home stone to place around the cemetery, with their voice, thoughts and wishes.
