2017 – Heichal HaZikaron, Kimmel Eshkolot Architects and Liran Chechik

The award-winning National Memorial Hall building on Mount Herzl serves as a repository of the names of all the soldiers, Jewish and non-Jewish, who have died in Israel’s wars. Kimmel Eshkolot Architects, together with Liran Chechik, created a spiral structure, open to the sky, that offers a haven of consolation and healing for the families. Fittingly, a memorial light automatically lights up next to the name of each soldier on the anniversary of the soldier’s death. (Image by Nadav Barkai, CC BY-SA 4.0, via Wikimedia Commons)
