Jonas Dahlberg, who lives and works in Stockholm, has won the ‘Memorial Sites after 22nd July’ competition. The jury selected his project, which consists of several parts, unanimously from amongst 300 international entries.

‘Memory Wound’ is the title of the gash to be cut through the landscape of the Sørbråten peninsular.

Stone cut from here will be transported to the government district in Oslo, where a car bomb detonated by Breivik exploded. Here it will be used to create a further memorial. The memorials will be unveiled on 22 July 2015 – the fourth anniversary of the attacks.
