The project belongs to an advanced and modern school of
architecture, which faced a challenge regarding the
structure of its oblique walls and sloping ceilings.
Because the life of the resistance fighters was simple, but
deep with meaning and inspiration, Mleeta landmark was
structured in a harmonic and similar way to this life.
Hence, its foundations embraced great artistic symbols and
significance through the scenic and artistic works that
mimic the experience of the Mujahedeen in building and
camouflaging the concrete fortifications.
The landmark took its quadrate shape in order to mimic the
Muslim's Kiblah, while pointing to four sides: the north and
south that represent the journey of the flying birds that
seek a warm homeland, the east that points to the sunrise of
the resistance and its society, and the west that points to
the fading star of the occupation and tyranny.
A large number of engineers, artists, and specialists
contributed to building the project. The project's thoughts
and ideas were discussed for five years, while its
construction took three years, despite the difficult
conditions of the climate and nature.
