London-based practice Metaphor

  • Comment

London-based practice Metaphor has been shortlisted in an open competition to design a monument to the 2,500 Jews of Mannheim deported to concentration camps in one night during World War II. The glass table is proposed for the corner of Heidelberger Strasse. The 12mlong slab and benches are made of laminated and toughened glass.Each of the 2,500 first names are listed randomly and embedded in the lamina. The typeface used will be 'Albertus'designed by Bertholt Wolpe, a Jew who escaped to London in 1935 and a pupil of the great German typographer Rudolp Koch.
