Text description provided by the architects. Located in the heart of the Parc des Glacis, a bastion of Vauban fortifications, the remembrance site is enclosed by Corten steel walls that cut the ground just like trenches and revel the changes in topography.

A glade located in belvedere position, the esplanade enjoys exceptional views over the Doubs valley and the old town. The high steel walls carry with them the engraved memory of the soldiers whilst providing framed views over the surrounding landscape.

The site is located on a major traffic artery between the train station and the "Battant" historic neighborhood. Traversed by a very busy pedestrian way, this evocative space thus preserves history from all erosion, that of time and that of the collective memory.
