Verdict in historic trial of US-backed Guatemalan dictator (1982-1983): Rios Montt found guilty of Genocide - This verdict is a reward for the sustained and determined efforts of Mayan communities for over 30 years!
Former General Rios Montt was convicted of ordering the deaths of 1,771 Ixil Maya people during his time in office in 1982 and 1983.
Rios Montt was sentenced to 50 years for genocide and 30 years for crimes against humanity. An enormous day in history.
The project enhances the experience of the Trollstigen plateau’s location and nature. Thoughtfulness regarding elements and materials underscore the site’s nature and character, and well-adapted, functional facilities augment the visitor’s experience. The architecture is characterised by clear and precise transitions between planned zones and the natural landscape. Through the notion of water as a dynamic element - from snow, to running and then falling water - and rock as a static element, the project creates a series of prepositional relations that describe and magnify the unique spatiality of the site.
