the memorial for the tsunami of 2004 in the indian ocean by london architects carmody groarke in the grounds of the natural history museum and the new darwin center. this is a 120 tonne cube, the texture on the sides are the original cuts from the quarry. one corner is missing, you can stand there, feel the weight of the stone above and contemplate the hundreds of thousands of people who lost their lives.
