On Monday 4th March 2019 the Sousse and Bardo Memorial will be opened by Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex. The memorial, design by George King Architects, is dedicated to the 31 British nationals who lost their lives in two terrorist attacks in Tunisia in 2015.
At the centre of the memorial is a sculpture entitled ‘Infinite Wave’’ which recreates a single wave formed from 31 individual streams, one for each British national who lost their lives in the attacks. The sculpture is made from 745 meters of mirror finish stainless steel tube and is inspired by the fluid geometry of flowing water, frozen in place, as if time has stood still at the moment of the attacks. The landscape surrounding the sculpture continues the theme of water, with a granite amphitheatre flowing out from the sculpture in concentric circles.
The memorial sits within Birmingham’s Grade II listed Cannon Hill Park.
