The Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jewish People during World War II in Markowa is Poland's first institution commemorating Poles who helped Jews. The museum's ascetic architectural form that cuts into the ground, as well as the exhibition hidden inside, was designed by Nizio Design International. Within the museum's layout composition it is not only the form, but all the other elements, too, such as texture and material, that are to express the content related to the museum's message. The minimalist, abstract architectural forms that have been applied here trigger certain feelings in visitors. The ascetic shape of the building is reminiscent of a house. The symbolic vision of home, which is associated with love and security, was confronted by the designers with compositional forms that express anxiety and threat.
