A visitor from the city center to the memorial area finds himself in the tense area of ​​war, after entering the structure from the entrance to the “war” axis that connects the wall roads. He fell into a wide gap. He’s with stories of war. Each corridor guides him to another story and another memory of the heroes of that story. During these orientations, light comes to him sometimes. The courtyards filled with light are the doors to peace. Each opened door brings him closer to peace and finally reaches the “peace” axis coming from the city center and perpendicular to the axis of war. On this axle, “Moment Stones” is next. Each “moment stone” represents a war hero. A narrow pass through the passage of recognizing the heroes of the war visitors. Then it reaches peace. Peace is green here, the untouched nature in the appearance of a top cover. The peace is often preserved isolated with a green cover. Then, under the feet, this green rises from one side to another and becomes a memorial area. Visitors approaching the memorial area face a stern wall. This “memorial wall” is carried on the shoulders of each “moment stone”. They exist from their heroism and sacrifice. Tilting his head below the monumental wall presents the respect of the visitor and reaches the ceremony area.
