Located between the Brandenburg Gate and Potsdamer Platz is the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Peter Eisenman, the designer of this memorial, created a plan that would consists of the Field of Stelae standing on 4.7-acre site. This Field of Stalae, consist of 2,711 concrete slabs, which are 7’10” long and 3’1” wide but vary in height (8” to 15’9”). Eisenman wanted to create a design that would produce an uneasy, confusing atmosphere aiming to “represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason”. As the viewer begins to move through the piece, they begin to see that these tall structures are placed on a sloping ground. The combination of the growing evenly placed slabs on a slopping field certainly contributes to the an anxious feeling one can get when entering this site.
