The noteworthy building SNP Memorial in Banská Bystrica caught an attention of prominent architectonic portal archdaily.com.

In the article, the author introduces the remarkable Slovak building that bears a likeness to a unique form of sci-fi architecture, together with the inverted pyramid of Slovak Radio and Bridge SNP, portal My Bystrica wrote.

The top work of Slovak architect Dušan Kuzma is one of the symbols of Banská Bystrica.

“There are many interpretations, explaining the form of SNP Memorial, from the inspiration of Corbusier’s sculptures, a shepherd’s hat to principles of organic architecture,” wrote Slovak architect Štefan Šlachta about one of the most significant artworks of Kuzma, as quoted by My Bystrica.

Kuzma cooperated on this Memorial with Academic sculptor Jozef Jankovič. The construction of the complex was between the years 1966 and 1968, and the memorial was finished in 1969, My Bystrica reported.
