Sketching is an essential part of my landscape architecture practice. Here are some of my design sketches for a small memorial seating area project in Tišina, Slovenia.

I have just received from the co-author of the design, architect Tomaž Ebenšpanger, a link to an internet site, which features the project, constructed last year. It is a minimalist design with a memorial bench and a drinking fountain, dedicated to two local priests. We designed a small bronze plaque at the fountain well, so when one bows to drink some water, one reads words from scripture in slovenian language: ‘I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the Water of Life freely.’ (Rev 21:6)

The view of the memorial was photographed by photograper Miran Kambič.
