The basic idea of the „Memorial of the 100th Anniversary of the Republic“ realization of which was initiated by the city Pacov, was designed by students of the local perennial secondary grammar school and was closely connected with Pacov and its inhabitants. The essence of the memorial lies in gaining 101 handprints of anonymous people born in the years 1918–2018. The handprints were processed into circular templates which were inserted into the memorial structure. The architects cooperated with the city to find the ideal place in the city which was eventually determined in the castle park. A folded conical wall made of rusty sheet metal is perforated with a timeline into which individual handprints are inserted. The unfilled openings make the memorial lighter and more transparent in the space. There is an atypical concrete bench placed in front of the memorial with a “Linden Tree of the Republic” planted in the middle. Realization of a new threshing path replacing the original panels road became a part of the memorial.

The main material used for the memorial is roughly welded rusty sheet metal and the natural stone of the atypical bench.
