National Monument MH17

Posted on: 21 July 2022

It was 8 years ago this week that plane MH17 crashed, killing all 298 people on board. It is still an immeasurable loss for thousands of surviving relatives. The Stichting Nationaal Monument MH17 wanted to give a place to these feelings – an ambition that has been realised thanks to the efforts of many. Pelecon had the honour of making the structural calculation of the memorial.

The MH17 National Monument is a special landscape object that aims to keep the memory of the 298 victims alive. In the park-like oasis, 298 trees have been planted in a green ribbon in memory of the victims; one for each victim. A place that binds together and serves as an oasis of reflection, comfort and hope. Surrounded by a wreath of sunflowers, with an intimate amphitheatre and an impressive memorial.
