New Documentation and Information Center for Bergen Belsen Memorial that located in Celle, Germany, was designed by KSP Engel und Zimmermann GmbH. The two-storey edifice, stringently structured in terms of function, lies like a dynamically extended walk-in sculpture in the middle of Heidewald forest on the edge of the former concentration camp. Its extraordinary cubature, the radical limitation to just a few monochrome materials, the lack of any detailed ornamentation as well as the physical presence of the large shape with minimalist recesses and openings merge into a powerful, meaningful piece of architecture.
Two paths lead from the entrance: the one into the building, continuously though scarely perceptibly rising in a perplexing manner along the exhibtion areas to the end of the large hall. Here a wide window that embraces the front of the building affords visitors to the exhibition an excellent view both inside and outside and gives the structure a striking appearance.
