The design team proposed the restoration of the park to its previous historical form and the integration of a three level underground museum structure.
The excavated archaeological site at the edge of the park, is covered by a low height, planted, artificial hill. The necropolis location is marked by a overhanging glass dome glowing during the night. The element dome, apart its symbolic meaning, is composed by multiple layers, and constitutes a light and a passive energy filter.
