memorial house todor proeski

based in skopje, macedonia, syndicate studio has completed 'memorial house todor proeski', a structure dedicated to the life of 
the young macedonian singer tose proeski, in gumenje, krushevo, macedonia. the pop icon and humanitarian of the balkans region 
was named an honorary citizen for his achievements and this memorial represents the country's collective respect for the recent 
prominent figure. carved into the rolling hills typical of the region and in close proximity to historical heritage sites, including the 
makedonium monument and city cemetery. tracts of parkland merge and become the gently sloping roof, allowing visitors to roam 
throughout the grounds and onto the building. bordered by white retaining walls, a series of stairs are recessed into the terrain 
leading to a monolithic concrete volume which has been intersected with a smaller transparent cube.
