An entry for the competition for the new Belgian momument in Amersfoort.

buildings ruined, forgotten

sunken into the depths of memory

but again revealed

is it half sunken into the ground

or half emerged from the earth

ruined and in parts yet

each of them standing in solitude

expressing their own story, their time, their destruction

together they represent something distance and yet strangely familiar

it was part of a city

and it could well be the future

they are at once reminding and precautionary

monuments .
