Whilst in Berlin we visited this place, the Holocust Memorial. I'd seen images of the concrete columns designed by architect Peter Eisenman and Buro Happold online before and was curious to see them, I hadn't anticipated quite what an effect this place would have on me. Just standing amongst the columns was incredibly moving, they have an imposing presence unlike that of any structure I've encountered before. Add to that feeling the historical story that unfurls downstairs in the information centre and you can't not be moved. I left in tears, deeply saddened by the horrors man is capable of. Thinking about it now, I'm moved again.
