An Ode to the Valorous: Martyr Memorial

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
Design titled, ‘An ode to the valorous’ is a monument that stands tall in a land where once stood souls full of vigor and resolve. The design is a tribute to the fallen souls who have fought for their land, its people, and their home.
The site is axially aligned along the Naya Raipur Marg.
The iconic structure: ten pillars rise up towards the sky like ashen grey hands to pray to the heavens for the souls of those martyrs. Every structure on the site arises from within the warm embrace of the very soil that they fought for.
The site is broadly divided into three zones.
Zone 1 is developed as a cultural zone.
Zone 2 is the central space that is flanked by souvenir shops and kiosks. The roof of the shops emerged from the ground and is accessible to the users serving as viewpoint for the entire site.
Zone 3 is the iconic structure and its plaza.
