Memorial of B. Bjørnson

The memorial of BB is drafted as a quiet reminder of gratitude and the need „to fly on your own wings“. At the same time it is a mutual projection of two great personalities of the two nations. The connection line between the present and the past as well as between the reef and the empty space above the „fjord“ serves this purpose. The reef is a symbolic expression of Jurkovič's memorial and the empty space above the „fjord“ is an expression of BB. The bench functions as an inter-mediator for the visitor. It is a place for an intimate dialogue between man, nature, eternity…God.

The ground plan of the bench is slightly trapezoidal and terminated by the glass bannister in the narrowest spot above the country. The wooden floor continues to the reef behind the road where the glass panel with the title Bjornson, trilingual information and with a picture of Jurkovič´s original of the memorial is situated. In the course of a detailed look at the panel, the title Bjornson will overlap with the rock reef which enables the visitor to “experience” the idea without any interference in nature. The bench will be completed in the second phase.
